    Default 2006: The year of bleeding fast computers

    First up: 4.26 GHz, 2gigs of DDR2 667 RAM and most importantly, 2 x Dual NVIDIA 7800 GTX 512, also known as Quad SLI.

    And Blowing away the former(but no one knows if it's real or not):
    6.8GHz CPU (NOT overclocked) with 256MB incorporated memory(Yes that's MB), apparently up to 64GB of RAM and 2TB of Disk Space. The creator behind all this is a lone genius who's been popping up with ninja-level components for year but has yet to allow a hands on. This time at CES 2006 he showed this:

    However, with approximately half the world calling bullshit, I'm going to reserve judgement.

    What the hell am I looking at? Busses?

    The HD replacement there says ATA still. What exactly has he made?


    On a somewhat related note, we should be seeing what Cell can do this year as well. ^^

    They look like HDD ATA PCBs but I'm not sure, never seen the inside of a terabyte HDD before....

    The former setup sounds awfully similar to Jyuudaime's setup while the latter seems kind of far fetched.... Is it even remotely possible to have 256MB of L2?

    Well, according to the 'inventor' it's a diskless(not dickless) storage device utilising a technology I can't speel but has the word 'Quantum' in it. They are about the size of CF cards, I think. And the first computer mentioned is made by DELL, which is ironic. But they must have some card up their sleeves, as they were bold enough to overclock a CPU almost 30% and still WARRANTY it.

    Ahh... I see then. Looks like he drops one of these quantum storage card thingies on to a firmware device with an Ultra-ATA buss connector. I remember reading something almost a year ago now that some of the computer manufaturers wanted to go back to a 'hard edge' connection design so that the users simply had to pop the HD, CD-Rom, etc. out of the front of the computer and slide a new one in. If those cards were/are made to be swappable, that could fit that request very nicely. My overstreched, mostly bullshit speculation. ^^;

    As for the 256MB L2... I'm sorry, but I really wan't to call bullshit on that one. Someday, I'm sure, but right now I don't even see that as practical. Do-able, yeah, but what the hell for? I would think that once you got so high, it would be a waste without more data lines, but thats just me. Anyone have any insite into this?

    [spoken introduction]
    You see, I come from a time in the nineteen-hundred-and-seventies when computers were used for two things - to either go to the moon, or play Pong… nothing in between. Y’see, you didn’t need a fancy operating system to play Pong, and the men who went to the moon–God Bless ‘em–did it with no mouse, and a plain text-only black-and-white screen, and 32 kilobytes of RAM.

    But then ’round ’bout the late 70’s, home computers started to do a little more than play Pong… very little more. Like computers started to play non-Pong-like games, and balance checkbooks, and why… you could play Zaxxon on your Apple II, or… write a book! All with a computer that had 32 kilobytes of RAM! It was good enough to go to the moon, it was good enough for you.



    Had to post it...
