  1. Show off your old and retro computer parts

    you realise you've just quoted a 4 year old post right ? :\
  2. I'm building circuits with 74 series IC's , and when looking at AC characteristics for these chips , such as propagation delay in particular , there's often a significant gap in terms of delay ( >50%) when looking at typical vs max. (74F374) How are these defined? Those this mean that the same IC in the same environment might randomly take a lot longer , or is it on a per-chip basis ? If so , is it a conservative estimate , and do chips nearly always run at typical values?
  3. CrossFire Vega 56

    Vega 56 or 64?
  4. Show off your latest purchase!

    it's automatic . I can also leave whenever i want.
  5. Show off your latest purchase!

    What do you mean?
  6. I5-4800 or ryzen 5 1600 for a 1070?

    I'd go for ryzen due to the lower clocks of the 8400, lack of SMT and locked multiplier. Plus the 8400 requires a z370 board atm
  7. Show off your latest purchase!

    Not a physical item, but i just got myself a new cell phone plan. Unlimited talk, text and 30GB 4G+ for 10 euros a month.
  8. Fast help, von neuman vs harvard vs today's archiecture

    Both of those methods describe ways the processor interacts with memory, their contents etc. -Von Neumann describes a model where both the data and instructions are stored in a central pool of memory ( read /write) This memory is accessed via a central bus. It was thought up by the mathematician John Von Neumann, during the 50's. -Harvard actually pre dates Von Neumann, as it was actually first implemented in the Harvard Mark 1 computer of the 1940's, which used electromechanical relays. Both the data and instruction memory are kept seperate, with the former being read/write and the latter being read only. The advantage here is that both these memory pools have their own bus, thus meaning that the cpu can access data and instructions at the same time , improving performance. It's for this reason that modern processors use a modified Harvard architecture, wirh one of the common modifications being that both memories are read/write, allowing Von Neumann's self modifying code, among other things. You can actually see the Harvard implementation by looking at L1 cache on modern chips, which is typically split.
  9. Xeon Phi might be dead

    The cancelation of xeon phi has nothing to do with amd. AMD doesn't even have a competing product. Zen core is too big and too power hungry for that. Jaguar is the closest they have, and it's old and inadequate. Rather, xeon phi was competing against Nvidia, Cuda and gpus for the AI and GPGPU market. It was doing poorly in most cases, and intel’s gpu push might be the reason it finally bit the dust.
  10. that was really what i meant by proper i guess. no point in this if it's basically windows RT . CISC vs RISC isn't even a debate nowadays . X86 has been RISC since p6 and K5 , but conserving it's CISC instruction set for compatibility . ARM isn't pure RISC , either , with multi-cycle instructions like the NEON instruction set ( SIMD ).The only arch that is arguably still CISC is IBM's system z (Z/390). It's not that ARM does "less work" or that x86 does more or handles more complex stuff . Both ISA's can handle the same tasks . The reason for their different power characteristics comes down to implementation ( µarch ) and the goals and requirements set when intel and ARM developed them ( intel silvermont vs the rival Krait and cortex a53/a57 ). Intel's silvermont did end up using more power in the end , but it also didn't have the advantage of BIG.little
  11. I just want a proper x86 emulator so i can run proper desktop applications.

  13. Isn't it just the beta ? The website is only showing the beta , nightly and dev editions atm
  14. Price of silicon wafer rising sharply

    i kind of agree with you on that one . It's coming to a point where they are interfering with the actual company and their work , with the only goal to increase the bottom line . Long term sustainability and reputation be damned.
  15. Sapphire NITRO Vega 64 leaked + performance numbers.

    that's because it's running at reference clocks . The performance improvement is due to less throttling because of the better cooler.
