Once again, I do it for the bettering and benefit of people who take the time to read it. No need for thank yous.
AKA: WHAT PROGRAMZ R U UZIN' WIT 6 COREZ?
How's Autodesk 3DSMax 2010 or Autodesk AutoCad LT 2009. Windows 7 will have great support for it and making sure to utilize it the best out of any other OS out there. I know Linux has been getting some tune ups under the hood and finally being able to utilize 128 cores with its latest 9.06 installment.
Many of Adobe's Masterclass of suits for CS4 can utilize not just a lot of cpu cores but also the gpu that should be doing all the work to begin with (Considering that it's responsible for bit-map mesh rendering and algorithms and if you think about it; those are basically the most important and challenging components to handle within the program.
I would also like to watch a 1080P movie playing while I have msn and Firefox opened up on two displays. I can sort of do it already with my current set-up but if I want to move windows or go any more steps further into stressing the processor, it will eventually start becoming very slow.. and I don't like that.
Because the new chips will be able to carry out more complete instructions in every cycle (Lets say an average processor would do like 4 in every cycle, well this thing would do like 18) and have the large aid of having 12 completely opened threads, there is a sickening amount of power there. Because it's also smaller shrink size as already mentioned, the memory controller is smaller and faster, the amount of cache is nearly doubled and the gates still work fine with such narrow circuit paths
And surprisingly, the size of the transistors and gates inside the chips are exponentially coming to their tipping points of not being able to allow atoms to cross their paths without flying out and causing a unreliable processor. Lukily they will most likely change the materials they change, such as Silicone to Graphene which will apparently allow us to go even smaller and further to the ultimate goal of making a 1nm chip (Silicone can't allow anything smaller than 16nm to function properly).
There are also a few other g_d materials that apparently will change the computing world forever but I don't remember what they were anymore. I want a quantum computer, that's for sure. For those who don't know what it is, watch this video and be amazed. Link. I'm going to sleep.
