I drove an Atom once. It pretty much ruined everything.
Sonic Intoxication is back up and swinging and we're having fun making dat fat ISK. If you're up for some small gang PVP, Incursions, and generally making money with friends it might be a good time to join up. I had fun in TEST but got tired of being space-poor. Come line your wallet with us.
Any prediction regarding the ramifications of IBM and Global Foundries would be way off base because I don't pay enough attention to this stuff anymore. However, I predict I will be having chili for dinner tonight. You can take that one to the bank.
@Cannonfodder is 30 lol
CPUs have three things that matter:
The number of opportunities per second to calculate information. Example: 3.1 GHz = 3.1 billion chances per second.
Adds parallel capacity. Example: two CPU cores at 3.1GHz offers 6.2 billion chances. Desktop CPU cores go up to 8 cores.
Chevy's V8 engines are different from Hyundai's V8 engines. They both burn petrol, they're both V8, but they're clearly built differently. CPUs aren't dissimilar: desktop/laptop CPUs burn the same fuel (code), but they can be very different in how that work is done.
Different architectures can make much better use of those opportunities to calculate information than other architectures. They can do much more work per opportunity. They're more efficient. But as most people don't understand the innards of an engine, so too is a CPU's architecture the indecipherable wildcard for most.
Some architectures deliberate sacrifice performance to achieve lower power consumption. This is like an engine built for fuel efficiency, rather than raw speed.
Damn, I totally got Dan and Terin the wrong thing.
