Re: Kempner Rice Diet

Also the patients effectively served as their own controls. Remind me not to choose you to design a clinical trial. I understand that you would want a randomized double blind placebo controlled trial to prove efficacy. But I wouldn’t consider rising blood pressure and sugar levels, on thousands of ...

Re: Kempner Rice Diet

I think rice diet was just a temporary measure until the patient's blood pressure and sugar levels were under control. Also the patients effectively served as their own controls.

Re: 16 core CPUs with a single RAM channel are AWESOME

It's not clear TR3 will have 64 cores. If your workload requires more memory bandwidth, buy the product that makes sense for your workload.

On the memory issue. Wouldn't eDRAM be a solution?

Re: AMD Hawaii R9-290X GPU

My concern with this card is that it's brute-forcing the lead with an expensive 512-bit design and physically huge GPU, rather than architectural or process improvements that increase performance/cost. I wouldn't call the design brute force. At around 430mm^2 it's 30% smaller than Nvidia's behemoth...

Re: xbox/physx

If you think the Xbox One or PS4 are going to be running Physx on their Jaguar-core CPUs, I think you are nutso. I'm positive that they'll be running on the GPU. Savyg is not nusto. According to nVidia PhysX runs primarily on the CPU. http://physxinfo.com/news/10531/nvidia-is-continuing-to-be-a-par...

Opera 64bit, but they will be moving to the Webkit/Blink for future releases.

Re: AMD's Temash Will Redefine Tablet Performance[Seeking Al

AMD should be able to achieve a single thread improvement over 30% (15% for IPC and clockspeed). If I'm not mistaken Cinebench is FPU intensive. Jaguar's FPU is twice as fast as Bobcat, 128 bit versus 64bit.

Re: Shave some dollars of this HTPC

If you're interested in reducing power consumption further, you could consider undervolting the APU. It might be possible to save 10W or more on the APU.

I think you're talking about Jim Keller.

Re: Folding 24/7 with core 2 vs ivy or sandy bridge

You also have to consider the power supply efficiency, which is probably about 80%-85%. So your saving would be about $6 a month.
