[PCG]Meet Tranquility, the military-grade 2,500GHZ monster that powers Eve Online - Page 3

The CPU running this thing must have an incredibly deep pipeline to squeeze out 2500Ghz.

Non-tech? In many virtual machine environments, the total computer resources are measured in GHz, added up just like the article.

I played eve online with my Macbook pro early 2008 (with windows in boot camp):
Specs: 2.6Ghz, 4GB of ram, 8600m GT.

Played just fine. Learning curve is very steep indeed.

Indeed, my old build with a GTX 280/Q9450 in it ran three clients at once without any issue. It's probably one of the least demanding games out there.

My laptop with Athlon II 2.6GHz and 4570 can run multiple clients at minimum detail. It looks horrid but it works so I have no idea where you get the idea from that it's demanding. Your PC should run it just fine.

Played just fine. Learning curve is very steep indeed.

Hardware requirements have changed dramatically. An 8600GT is now bare minimum as they've updated the visuals and are bringing them in line with current games, though they only require SM 3.0 and not 4 or 5. Game looks really good regardless.

Learning curve is... killer.

I love how companies throw out "military grade" hardware so easily.

Military grade hardware isn't a real thing. The military uses Dell prebuilt desktops, toughbooks they pay 3 times as much as civilians for, macbooks with bootcamp, and ipads.

Military grade is a gimmick.

Military grade hardware is a real thing.

All are are built for adverse environments because they are exposed to natural elements by being used in a tent or further out in the field.

Some are built to withstand far more electrical punishment than normally is required.

Some have various components to be compatible with the closed off networks.

They probably are overpriced but they have their reasons for being more expensive than what you would buy for a home.

I love this "learning curve" statement about Eve Online. we're teaching my 5 year old niece to play it. Sure.. she isn't multiboxing incursions or anything but she does know how to play the game and enjoy it.

Distributed NoSQL and memcache do just that... they make a multi-TB RAMDisk.

Google's infrastructure makes it more like a multi 100TB+ RAMDisk....

They bought hardware from Texas Memory System (TMS) which prior had only sold to the military. TMS at the time specialized in DRAM-based SSDs and were beginning to look at NAND-based SSDs. TMS was acquired by IBM last year...

Not true at all... there are certifications. These cost time and money... one reason why mission-critical, medical, aerospace, and military hardware cost more for virtually the same consumer/enterprise part.
