Water Cooling a TI-84

Though, I should probably not go through the whole history of computer architectures, even though the Z1 is an interesting mechanical beast....

 

Suppose it would be fair to say modern high-performance CPUs focus more on throughput rather than latency. It may take more cycles for an instruction to go from start to finish, but (many) more instructions can be handled simultaneously. 

I think a deep dive into cpu architectures, while certainly beyond the scope of this thread, would make a great dedicated thread. 


The pursuit of knowledge for the sake of knowledge.

Forever in search of my reason to exist.

At that point I think a book would be more fitting to be fair.


Though, having studied computer architecture design and semiconductor device manufacturing for over a decade. Not to mention general electronics for even longer.

One eventually reaches that part of the Dunning Kruger effect that one underestimates other peoples knowledge in the field... In other words, I got to remind myself that everyone doesn't inherently know what a memory channel is, or what a program counter does, or how x86/ARM shuffles threads around in the background...

 

Making a questions and answers session would be fun, though having unintentionally done that in various chat rooms and comment sections through the years shows that some people ask oddly specific questions about very specific processors. Either to be a gnarly troll pointing out that they in fact know more about a singular detail, or due to having a genuin interest in that specific thing. (Its a bit like asking a car expert what the ratio is between a specific pair of gears in a specific model and brand of car, they likely won't know the correct answer.)

 

Though, wouldn't call myself an expert, I am mostly generally knowledgeable, can be wrong about stuff at times, or mix up details. Mistakes, we all make them.

Is it any more difficult  than jailbreaking an iPhone?

It seems easier than jaibreaking an iPhone

I got the TI-84 Plus CE in 8th grade (the one Texas Instruments sent them). I think the reason the TI-Connect software hasn't changed at all is because the newer calculators use TI-Connect CE, which does look considerably more modern. I would love to see someone try overclocking those too, because they're faster than the older models already and it would be interesting to see them reach their full potential.
