There is a widely held notion that RISC and CISC processor design have converged and the terms are now meaningless. Paul DeMone shows why this viewpoint is wrong and how the inherent superiority of RISC is influencing the future of the x86 architecture.
Paul DeMone examines the failure of Intel’s first ‘super chip’ to see if Intel has learned all the necessary lessons to ensure success for their EPIC second attempt.
Here is a very low-level look at what why overclocking works, and why it sometimes doesn’t!
Find out here exactly what the performance advantages – and disadvantages – of DRDRAM are from an industry expert.
A Renewed Quest For Architectural Simplicity As is often the case for troubled projects, the initial architects of what evolved into IA-64 started with the best of intentions: researchers at Hewlett Packard Laboratories (HPL) wanted to lead a second RISC revolution. The first RISC revolution, more than a decade earlier, was a reaction to the […]
