Fascinating stuff. ← On Ben Goldacre on Gillian McKeith… → Links for 2007-02-15 One reply on “Links for 2007-02-13” Not that I’m a pro chip designer, but I know the basics, and it sure doesn’t make much sense to me. Except, perhaps, design wise – just adding more cores instead of designing a new core (and a new).. A single core is better than multicore for pretty much every application I can think about, at least in the consumer market, anyway. I bet it’s kinda like those hair schampoos that always “improve their formulas”, at least for ordinary people.. just trying to keep the hype to keep up the price on a product that people doesn’t really need further development from.
