How much money did I take from the RIAA and MPAA by downloading?
if you want a conservative monoculture.
"We were unable to refactor our code to use all cores so we suck, but we found a scapegoat!"
Back in the day the evil commercial industry saved me from the ivory tower I was heading for. Now if there's much less demand for university trained (not yet|post) docs what do you get?
If your English wasn't so atrocious I might upvote you.
Come on, installing Linux doesn't take that long.
The same can be said for any file server and workstation. I still don't understand why ECC is so unpopular.
Hmm, does it get faster on a bigger CPU? 8x3TB gives you 500-600 MB/s with a HW RAID6.
"Up to x% better" means the same as "less than x% better."
Well as long they have little competition why should they push anything?
I can only hope that AMD and TSMC or GloFo will do something about that.
Some experts say it's because shale gas expanded too fast so that a glut depressed the price and nobody made money any more.
Oh no, a voice of reason!
> Natural gas in the US has more than that
The question is at what price - just like for tight oil.
Moore's law was about a one node shrink every 18 months, meaning a reduction in structure sizes by sqrt(2), i.e. twice the number of transistors at the same die size. The reduction in size meant a reduction in gate thickness and operating voltage by sqrt(2) and a reduction of capacitances by a factor of two. Those allowed an increase in clock speed of sqrt(2) at constant power. None of that is happening any more.
