  • Quote: Originally posted by The One to Rescue Top-end CPU = PPC970-like CPU, here. Agree! It adds up. But I believe that $300 is not a big difference when dealing with high-end stations. ~$1000 is... When considering G5 based machines,…
  • Quote: Originally posted by jginsbu In addition, you shouldn't think that increasing the cache on the G5 is quite the necessity that it would be on in the PC world. Apple's use of HyperTransport means that the G5s have much faster access to ma…
  • Quote: Originally posted by snoopy If you go to the link I provided in my earlier post, there are pictures of PCI Express connectors along side of standard PCI connectors on a motherboard. The Express 1X connectors are small, just one serial con…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Powerdoc PCI express will be an useful technology in 2 or 3 years. As people said AGP 8 X do not make a real difference now with AGP 4 X. Excepting some specials tasks ,256 MB of VRAM do not make a real difference …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Krassy i don't want to repeat myself but it seems as if i was - and still am - in a good position to win the bet on 90nm chips as well as my prediction for g5 xserves at the end of february funny that every answer …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Nr9 the majority of engineers just use the models and are given quantitative limits to the models. No, that would be technicians. michael
  • Quote: Originally posted by Nr9 heh. the engineer wouldnt care how the power is dissipated. engineer only want a model tat makes it easy to calculate the power dissipated. Some of we engineers are the ones who develop these models, and we nee…
  • Quote: Originally posted by stingerman I can't seem to find the original quote, but I came across this in my past research, In the design of pipelined processors, the hardware in each stage is optimized by restructuring logic and tuning trans…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Nr9 of course # of transistors will increase power used. it'll just increase the capacitances. the point is that you dont quantify the power used by the chip by analyzing the total current running through the total pat…
  • Quote: Originally posted by THT Would a MEMS scale device be more efficient? No. This is a maximum theoretical efficiency for any heat engine. Any real machine would be hard pushed to come anywhere near it, and in practice, the lower the t…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Big Mac Eugene, is child a term of endearment for you? Maybe I'm out of the infinite loop, but surely I can't be the only one wondering what that's all about. . . I found it incredibly interesting that the G4 has mo…
  • Quote: Originally posted by wizard69 Here is how to make a low costs feature rich mini. 1. A high integration 970, that is a chip with an on board memory controller. 2. A new high integration bus interface chip. Since the memory controll…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Luca Rescigno I thought I'd post a reply rather than creating a new thread for this question I had. What exactly does a smaller process do? What does it mean? I really have no idea. I was talking to my geek friend a…

  • Quote: Originally posted by Xidius September will bring us wide-screen iBooks, with a 1.1Ghz G.O.B.I. G3, with Altavec and L3 cache. - Xidius IBM have announced the 750GX. 1) It does *not* have AltiVec. 2) It will be available at t…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Anna Mated These generation of GPU can do 64-bit FP throughout, and AFAIK can do this with 4 way parallelism, hence 256 bit moniker. Like Altivec for 64bit FP. No. The cards can only do 32 bit (single precision…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Programmer This gives at least a faint hope for processor upgrades from the lower clock rates to 2 GHz. Higher rates will be at the mercy of what FSB speeds the chipset supports. Apparently max. FSB speed for the…
  • Quote: Originally posted by snoopy I'd like to hear from someone who knows how temperature control systems work today, but I'll guess that it is not done with thermocouples. Some semiconductor measurement made right on the processor chip itself …
  • Quote: Originally posted by johnsonwax This points out an obvious problem then. IBM making a 3GHz 970 != Apple shipping a 3GHz 970. I have trouble seeing Apple getting a 750MHz double-pumped FSB under control in the near term. BA over in Ars …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Programmer Aw man, I hope this isn't true. I want a small tower with lots of CPU-grunt. Apple has always tied CPU power to greater expandability, but there are a whole bunch of people who want a faster computer witho…
