Everybody knows that the future of supercomputing is Duotronics then Multitronics then Isolinear. Pheww, come on!

"Not the right device as we go to high performance computing."

Last time I checked pretty much every high performance device uses x86. You show me an ARM that will compete with an 8-core SB-E (Once Intel enables the extra 2 cores.) and I'll begin to believe that ARM is a good idea for high-performance.

We TOLD you guys... http://deviceunknown.com/?p=171

Everything we said is coming true lol

Gee it's RISC and CISC all over again.

...graphene and/or quantum computing. x86 and ARM will both be irrelevant in 15-20 years.

My question is for how long will Arm stay ahead. If I am not mistaken the next set of intel chips are much more power efficent then pervious generations, and I believe intel will continue with that trend for power computing that needs less power hungry CPU's. With that being sad we also have look at the power of CPU's not just how much energy the can save. From what I know and heard, the main reason intel holds such a large market share in power computing if the fact of how much power their CPU's can put out.

Well Nvidia are workin on a desktop ARM CPU so that would also help explain why they like to promote it.

video is lot less sensational that the headline.

ARM chips are “inherently much more energy efficient than an x86 CPU” - No duh!

“It’s a terrific processor for everyday computing,” - Sure

“Not the right device as we go to high performance computing,” - I guess time will tell.

 

It is interesting though that in this months MPC magazine, Gordon was hoping that American's realize the power of discrete graphics and GPUs has the spotlight in Nvidia's experiment.

No, the future of supercomputing is a complete redesign of the computer, in my opinion.
