The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part4)
Our main goal was not to change anything during the production process, and to solve the problem of how to place electrons on a floating shutter. Initially, we abandoned the…

Forecast for the Development of Computer Hardware and Software for 2001
Processors The most significant event is the appearance of two 64-bit processors (Intel and AMD) with different structures. In 2001, 64-bit processors still did not affect the market for processors…

Stages of a Long Way: Mass Intel and AMD Processors in 2001

Intel
Celeron is finally moving to the 100 MHz system bus. On January 3, the first CPU of this lineup came out – the 800-MHz version (multiplication factor – 8x). In May, we should wait for the second – Celeron 850, and in August for the third – Celeron 900. In September-October, Intel intends to take the 1 GHz line for cheap processors and hopes to start mass production of the Celeron model with a frequency of 1 GHz (multiplication factor – 10x) .

Metrology notes

Despite the variety of generally accepted tests, recently their results have often added confusion than to clarify the essence of the phenomena.

There are tests that allow you to measure the performance of a computer subsystem, for example, the speed of data exchange between a processor and memory or cache. These tests are necessary in order to find out the impact of individual technical solutions, more precisely, to understand why a particular processor is better or worse than others. But the practical sense in these tests is quite small. Continue reading

Who needs these 64 bits?

On September 23, the new 64-bit processors from AMD, Athlon 64 3200+ and Athlon 64 FX-51 were officially announced. However, Internet users have long been familiar with these processors, since the first AMD64 (Opteron) architecture processors appeared at the beginning of this year. Yes, and some instances of Athlon 64 processors during this time, many were in the hands of.The EPOS also had the opportunity to comprehensively investigate the performance and capabilities of the new processors, as well as work out a new model of the graphics station. Accordingly, the results of their testing are available, and the architectural features of these processors are described in sufficient detail. Continue reading

The victory of the losers, or the story of the creation of FLASH memory (part3)
We were very happy and proud; you know, young engineers with their own hands were able to make the first “flip” chip. After some discussion between Gordon and Andy, Gordon…

I love the heat at the beginning of the year!
Finally, winter has come. The time has come when it is necessary to seriously think about cooling computers. In magazines, the topic of computer cooling is raised, as a rule,…

Briefly about the main thing
So, without maintaining a normal thermal regime in the case, we will not see good luck! To cool the air inside the case, any computer has at least one fan.…
