doglover: What would I do with that much computation?
gozar_the_destroyer: omeganuepsilon: The_Time_Master: Or run your computer to play a vastly lower number of outdated games or struggle with wine to kind of gimp along with a modern game.FTFYNo window's fan myself, but gaming is never an apt argument for linux. You argue like a dirty conservative politician that is denying he was caught doing coke and farking the bellboy on the government's dime.It always strikes me as funny(in a very sad way), because it's a null argument from a technological standpoint anyways, it's all business deal what games get to which platform, not superior code or what have you.So, what are your thoughts on SteamOS then?
Great_Milenko: doglover: What would I do with that much computation?Run linux.Cause when you run linux, that's pretty much all you can do.
rocky_howard: Heh, wasn't that suppposed to be out by now?
fluffy2097: Very few programs in fact lend themselves to massively parallel processing.
fluffy2097: Epiphany is an entirely seperate chip that doesn't even have direct access to RAM.
fluffy2097: Lemme give you a hint. Heat output and power use are proportional to how much work gets done.
fluffy2097: How many consumer applications support 64 cores? What use does a consumer have for massively parallel computing?
fluffy2097: Awesome. All that processing power is spread over 64 cores. Which equals out to 700 mhz a core.How many consumer applications support 64 cores? What use does a consumer have for massively parallel computing?/crickets//You linux farks would be far better off getting rid of the X window system.///This is the year of desktop linux! The year 1984 to 2014!
