  • Intel 3D XPoint: More Hype Than Coup [View article]
    @Vlad - 3DXP screams as a replacement for in core database use or buffering and swap files for OS and SQL servers. If 3DXP is $2GB, Dram is $6GB and NAND is $1GB it's a no brainer to put a good chunk of 3DXP data base storage (256Gb) between system memory (32Gb) and SSD (1TB) for any or all database applications. That will not take a huge amount of testing if Intel does their due diligence. There's a whole bunch of enteprise database servers.

    Russ - Xpoint is pretty fast, very small, low power, non-volatile, cheap, and scalable. What else do you want.

    How about shipping by Christmas 2015!

  • Intel: Is There Hope For A Strong Future? [View article]
    I'm sure that idea has crossed Intel's minds several times but they do not want to end up like Apple's sapphire screen partner!

    I still think Sky Lake will improve CPU ujp to 10%, GPU up to 40% and power up to 30%.

    ThurderReborn: I agree, EUV is probably going to be required at 7nm tick but that's not necessarily in the immediate 3DX path.

    Thurberreborn,

    3D means it has height (z) in addition to width and depth (x and y). They're stacking materials to get the height.

  • Microsoft, Capitulation And The End Of Windows Everywhere [View article]
    The challenge is the authors get paid for clicks generating ad revenue. Therefore, writing controversial articles on subjects that are not necessarily based on an enterprise investments intrinsic values and equity prices can be very profitable. The whole Apple vs. Google vs. Microsoft gets a lot of generational juices flowing much as the AT&T vs. IBM vs. DEC. vs. DG debate may have done in the 1960s and 1970s.

    Maybe it's because Apple's losing tablet market share to Android and Windows?

  • Hacking concerns take center stage in automobile industry [View news story]
    A proper system would let you connect you smart phone to wireless console screen and controls and eliminate redundant costs and obsolescence inherent in any onboard automobile entertainment or naviagtion system. The auto infosystems are not worth $2-6K.

    Best solution, Do NOT buy a vehicle where there's a Wifi connection and the entertainment and vehicle networks are integrated. Vehicles need to support smart phones supplying content to wireless console screens and controls. That will also eliminate redundant costs and obsolescence.
