Isn't this what the article summary gets at ? I couldn't find anywhere in the conclusion how the P4 actually compares to present day processors.
I'm not about to read through 17 pages of all of that just to open my eyes.

Oh, and for CPU comparisons, I usually use:

It's quite reliable for my choices. I just need everything to boil down to a number these days. Too much choice out there. Was simpler when you could just look at Ghz and know which is better.

Comment Things are far more political than they seem.. (Score 1) 245

The problem in India is not of religion but the deadly cocktail that religion and politics create. I do support free speech and honestly think it's wrong [and a tad bit retarded] for the government to ask Google to shut down an Orkut group because of hate speech. The problem with riots in India is often due to politically motivated goals. A politician can polarise the public one way or another and thus sway the polls in his favour. This is the thing that pisses me off the most over here. People here are really intelligent, educated, compassionate, considerate, but if you drop the R-Bomb on them, they'll start acting like crazy lunatics the next second.

Censorship has always existed in India in a big way. You know, Fahrenheit 9/11 released here much later than in the rest of the world. But that's just the tip of the ice berg. The law and order situation prevents folks from using "free-speech" as a defence. If you DO say something against someone powerful and influential and said person finds out [and is affected], he'll surely send his goons to even the score. Sure, you won't get imprisoned for 'free-speech' but you might get worse.

This is certainly not the "END" of free-speech. And no, India is nothing like China at this point of time. Hell, I went to China and the folks there on the streets didn't know that something big had happened in Tienanmen Square. Now THAT IS CENSORSHIP!

Indians in general don't value free speech. We're a culture of followers [follow religion, follow elders, follow leaders, follow everyone] and any deviant (free-speech dude, atheist, etc. etc...) will probably get shut down. In all practicality, you can criticise religion, politics, people, the prime minister, policies and even the pope. Just be careful of who you do it in front of. You can be atheist but don't try and explain it to someone who is religious because you'll explain your beliefs much better than them and just end up confused as to why the other person still follows whatever they do. But that's probably just the same anywhere in the world. "A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything" - Nietzsche

And so what if they shut down an orkut group ? You think people can't express themselves any other place on the internet ? Basically, the Indian government just likes to exercise it's power where it can. Those are very few places.

Oh but as far as western hypocrisy is concerned. Come on guys, don't tell me about free-speech in your countries. Sure, I know that the new 'politically correct' USA has many issues with using certain words, phrases, etc. But look at how Switzerland banned the construction of Minarets as they are a symbol of Islam inspite of having a decent Muslim population. Things aren't as rosy in the west as they're made out to be. France banned the wearing of headgear for muslim women. That's religious expression. What about those dudes in the US who were "investigated" by the FBI for posting some random stuff online post 9/11 ?

Basically, everywhere sucks. Just relatively more or less. India is pretty free by most standards.

Sure, we have a problem in India. It's not as bad as China [not even comparable], and it'll never be, as long as we are allowed the free speech to admit to it. I hope though that the censorship folks realise that this is an exercise in futility. They never achieve any real censorship in India anyway. All our networks (Radio, tv, news, internet, word of mouth..) are way too out of control anyhow.

Besides, just chalk this one up to the Indian government being retarded as usual. Just add it to the list that already has the shutting down of public Wi-Fi after the Mumbai attacks [no coffee shop Wi-Fi anymore :(], requiring 10 verification documents to get a mobile sim, requiring to fill up a piece of paper everytime when entering the country and giving it with your passport and don't even get me started on the swine-flu line at the airports, plus all the other bizarre things that they think actually achieve something. These aren't leaders, these are politicians pretending to lead.


Submission + - Intel's Six-Core 'Gulftown' Numbers Leaked (

MasJ writes: "PCLab's Polish Website prematurely published test and performance results of Intel's new 6-core 'Gulftown' CPU. Soon after, the article was taken down at Intel's request. Numbers reveal that the new CPU performs almost 50% faster than the previous Quad-Core chips in parallel processes and consumes nearly 50% less power. The 'Gulftown' chip will ship under the Core i9 name and will be Intel's first 6-core dual-socket CPU to hit the market. AppleInsider got a good look at the article before it was removed and says that the CPU will use a 32nm process and might ship as early as Q1 2010."

MasJ writes: "It does not bode well for India that in the early stages of ramping up it's civil nuclear program, there are already some leaks in the works.

Fifty-five employees from the nuclear plant in Kaiga, Karnataka, India were treated for radiation poisoning as someone had apparently spiked their drinking water with Tritium. This comes at a time when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is in Washington D.C. holding talks with President Obama to strengthen the Indo-US Nuclear Program that shall enable the US to sell civil nuclear technology to India. Plant authorities say that the sabotage was deliberate and security is fool-proof."

Maximum PC says that AMD packs 2.15 billion transistors into a tiny chip, offering outstanding performance, DirectX 11 support, and triple-monitor (or better) capability. Nvidiaâ(TM)s response is nowhere to be seen. This new chip is no shrinking violet in the numbers department. Every number associated with the new Radeon 5800 series is staggering: 2.15 billion transistors, 2.7 trillion floating-point operations a second, more than 20 gigapixels per second throughput, 1,600 shader units. Other numbers impress because of their smallness. One example: The idle power is a scant 27Wâ" lower than many entry level GPUs.

Priced at $380 and touted as the lowest power consumption card in it's class, this monster will definitely change the rules of the playground a little bit. Graphics cards are becoming interesting and more importantly, affordable again."

Submission + - Should console makers take update responsibility? (

Minimalist360 writes: "When a console maker (Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo) "forces" an update onto your system should they take responsibility when things go wrong? My PS3 was recently updated to 2.76, and without the update one would no longer be able to play games online. In the process my optical disc ceased to recognize discs. It was working fine before this, and other people have had the same problem. Sony disavows responsibility, citing the low number of failures and claiming this must be coincidence. Since I'm outside of the initial warranty period, it will cost $149 + tax to fix. Their firmware cannot be downgraded to a previous version, by design. The problem may have never happened if Sony didn't update the PS3 firmware dozens of times after selling the console. My question is, does anyone think that console makers should take responsibility for problems resulting from completely replacing the firmware, since it is in some respects a "new" product?"

Apple's 3.0 firmware comes out tomorrow and will feature a large number of new features including MMS capabilities!

From the dev-team-blog:
On Tuesday evening (just before the big Apple release) we'll do a live demo of the yellowsn0w carrier unlock working on official 3.0 firmware. The actual link for the feed will be twittered by @MuscleNerd and also placed here when the feed starts. The demo should answer everything you need to know about the new yellowsn0w. But it's good news for iPhone 3G unlockers everywhere.

Finally looking forward to updating to firmware 3.0 and unlocking my iPhone again!"
