    I don't claim to be correct. If I misunderstood what he wrote then I would appreciate being made aware of it.

  • Intel Is Betting On Infiniband [View article]
    Putting an Infiniband channel on an MPU is an example.

    @Robert,

    Your response was so long that I think you forgot to answer my point. It make no sense to put an Infiniband port on the MPU. What the heck are you going to do with it, cache line fills? Overkill pure and simple.

    Does the author plan to ever come back and respond to the flaws in his article that have been pointed out?

    @raberto,

    Shhh. You are not supposed to remember that we are being fed the same old stuff by the Intel propaganda machine.

    "...there appears to be nothing of the company's smartphone efforts."

    Ashraf, this confirms my worst fears. Intel may be much further behind in compelling mobile chips than we surmise or have prayed for.

    "The lead in process technology that Intel has will allow it to do what no one else has: put the Infiniband host channel adapter (HCA) directly onto the processor chip, so that the (expensive) HCA not only comes with the processor but won't have to communicate with the outside world through an expansion bus. That will give Intel processors an inherent advantage in latency, power consumption, and cost."

    I fail to see architecturally what putting an Infiniband port on the MPU would do. After all, the MPU only has a limited amount of memory on-chip (the caches). Infiniband makes sense to interconnect multiple server processors (board level processors, including multiple MPU's, level 3 cache and system memory) and large memory subsystems.

    @TakeFive,

    Been there, done that. In order to have the end product on the shelves in time for Christmas, you have to be shipping volume by July at the latest, which means to have to seed units with OEMs March timeframe or earlier so they can do their board, thermal, package and software design.

    "These chips will be launched in early September; in time for OEMs to ship Baytrail powered tablets, laptops and convertibles to customers during the crucial holiday season."

    Sorry, that timeline is just plain wrong. If the chip is launched in early September, there is no way on earth that the store shelves will be crammed with tablets, etc. that are made with the new chips.

    Even if you change the wording from "launch" to "production shipments" the timeline still won't work.

  • Is Duke Energy Betting On The Future? Earnings Analysis [View article]
    Either the company is making large bets for the future, or it screwed up in assessing the problems with the nuke they bought recently. I think it is the latter rather than the former.

    @Sumflow,

    A classic example of do as I say, not as I do.

    Giorgiob,

    I wish I could put money in a Roth. Unfortunately I am retired now so no earned income to stash in a Roth.

    The alternative, converting part of the IRA to a Roth has some pretty bad consequences of their own as it can bump you to a higher tax bracket.

    Figuring that a dollar today is worth more than a dollar three years from now, I plan to take out the RMD and stash what I don't need in the brokerage account.
