GeForce2 MX 400 and GeForce2 MX comparison

We can say with sufficient degree of certainty that the performance of a card on a GeForce2 MX 400 equipped with the slowest memory at a frequency of 166 MHz (i.e. the same as a GeForce2 MX) will be approximately the same as that on a board on the old GeForce2 MX . A higher core frequency can provide a small increase in performance only at low resolutions and with 16-bit color depth. Continue reading

The oldest Athlon

No matter how unique a processor may be, there will always be tasks for which its performance will not be enough. Most often these are tasks of three-dimensional modeling (for example, 3D Max). As a rule, you can only improve your life a little in this situation by installing at least two processors in one machine. Therefore, a processor that cannot be installed in a multiprocessor configuration cannot be positioned as a processor for powerful workstations, not to mention servers. Continue reading

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part2)

This type of memory was made in the form of a two-dimensional matrix of conductors, at the intersection of which a thin jumper (20-30 μm) was created from metal or amorphous silicon. The programming of the microcircuits consisted of passing a large current pulse through an appropriate jumper that caused it to melt (burst). The likelihood of recovering torn jumpers was minimal. For greater reliability and eliminating the possibility of restoration of jumpers, the chip was subjected to thermal training (additional heating for a long time), and then it was checked and, if necessary, reprogrammed.

We overcome the limitations
Standards for SCS based on twisted pairs for Ethernet 10Base-T and Fast Ethernet 100Base-TX networks stipulate that: the maximum length of horizontal wiring is 90 m; the total length of…
