I too would like to see the information posted about this subject, maybe in a comparision with sandy or a lynnfield (or will this not work on those cpu's?). i need a good facade to justify the expense for an upgrade smile.gif
I do happen to have 4 of them.....maybe that's the suspicious liquid? They haven't tried to climb inside my case....yet.... a pair of them act like mobsters too!


I've seen a random routine be not so random before on a game, the problem would be analyzing it and figuring out how not random it is. I believe that all modern CPU's have an instruction that returns a semi-random number

Well this is a true random generator based on quantum processes. So, in theory, it should be truly random (assuming it is built correctly and doesn't malfunction, etc.).

Most CPU's do not have random generators on them. Some of the old Intel CPU's had them but they dropped the feature for years. Now it's back.

And to the guy who posted his output. How fast was the data flowing? Slowly or was it filling up your screen very quickly?

Are you referring to the gibberish I posted? because if so, it was instant.

Here's a small chunk of what it spit out at me:

Instant here too, filled up the whole terminal window.
