TFA needs top stop being idiotic drivel so that it's worth reading.
Take your concerns up with the laws of physics. I'm sure they'll care about your opinion.
They were solved years ago.
Just stick to Intel, Samsung, or Micron/Crucial, and avoid TLC.
Which traces back to the Pentium Pro. But Core 2 was a major advance over earlier versions.
I have a 2lb LG notebook. It's great. It doesn't feel "too light", or flimsy, or cheaply made.
If these Lenovo models do, it's not the weight, it's the specific materials used, or the construction, or the design.
Right. No business would take a real loss to prevent a larger theoretical loss. That's why the insurance industry doesn't exist.
HBM1 gives 1GB and 128GB/s per stack, so 4GB and 512GB/s in this model with 4 stacks.
HBM2 will double both performance and capacity, and is expected some time next year.
But that's working with 32-terabit floating point values.
These are small projects each focused on one specific detail, mostly modelling ways to predict and reduce sonic booms.
Also, the total amount is $5.7 million; I think the $2.3 million might be the first year.
Fastest Carrizo model (the FX-8800P) is 819GFLOPS.
If there's more than one, I suspect I might know what happened.
Well, it won't be the same price - it requires a more complex fab process - but yeah. Consumer MLC drives have proven themselves to be robust and reliable, for the most part. TLC still seems to be a bridge a little too far.
I'd like to see Tech Report re-run their endurance test with current drive models. The only "problem" is that drives are so good now that by the time the best model fails and we get the final score, none of them will be on the market any more.
A huge proportion of computing is moving to the cloud. Conventional disk storage is a nightmare for cloud services because there's such a huge disparity between sequential I/O and random I/O performance. CPU, memory, and network bandwidth all divide up nicely, but as soon as you have contention for disk I/O, it all falls apart.
This is known as the "noisy neighbour" problem. You might be happy and fine on your cheap VPS for months, and then the next day it collapses in a heap, even though you're getting the same allocation of resources you always have. It takes a lot of complex engineering and expert management to keep noisy neighbours at bay.
SSDs eliminate this, because SSD performance on multi-threaded random I/O is not far short of even their best-case sequential performance. Which means that every cloud provider wants to move to pure SSD. Exabytes worth of it. I work for a relatively small company, and we have 1.5PB of disk that we'd love to convert to SSD.
That SSD needs to be dense and reliable. Smaller process nodes improved density at a cost of write cycles. 3D flash gives us improved density and increased write cycles at a cost of more complex fabrication.
The market is there, all right.
They rotate around a common center of gravity. But that center of gravity is inside the Earth. Or to put it another way, no.
Companies in other states that buy CA produced crops should have to send the watere equivalent back to CA.
They do. This equivalent is known as "money".
