I'm a growing expanding boy.

Goofing with themes. I changed it back to solarized green.


Okay. Now I can actually see the display.img_4169

What I am looking at is the power usage. That would be a game changer for servers.


As just one example, a recent microprocessor design using RISC-V has a clock speed of 5 gigahertz, well above a recent, top-of-the-line Intel Xeon server chip, E7, running at 3.2 gigahertz. Yet the novel RISC-V chip burns just 1 watt of power at 1.1 volts, less than one percent of the power burned by the Intel Xeon.

It would be amazing to see x86 architecture finally be relegated to the dustbin of history.

1080p is fine.


Here in an hour or so, I head off to Walmart to grab a LED TV to use as a display. Been using one at the appt and it is so much easier on my eyes and I love the huge screen real estate.
