World's Fastest Residential Internet Connection - Page 7

post #61 of 114
Does no one else see an advantage of this besides gaming and porn ... With that high of speeds and insanely low latencies, we could start seeing setups where huge chunks of data is stored in a single server rather than on hard drives. Leaving only the OS on the hard drive.

And say you want to play a game, rather than buying the actual game you could just buy a cd key and the game would run it directly off their server. No installation, no wait times or anything.

Also no control!

I want my PC to stay next to me, I don't want a terminal station.

the internet is quickly approaching the status of being one giant computer/brain
with data transmission speeds approaching those of internal system buses.

easy fix. get about 100 computers together. have them all networked together and then have them all download the same file in a p2p style fasion where it is all done in small chunks. so not only would they be splitting the 5gigabytes a second between all of them they would also be sharing the pieces internally with one another which means one quick download

in these situations 30ms ping vs a 70ms ping isn't going to be a lot if you just can't transfer the data through that quick. remember it isn't all about gaming in the world
Never really meant for it to be about gaming, but show me a RAID configuration that can handle those speeds and i'll agree with you.
Also, show me an internet connection that can ping 70ms to china from the U.S., and i'll also agree with you.

Do you even understand how P2P networking works? They would all be dling from the same host, not each other (unless the said file was already on a drive, in which case they are idiots for re-dling it) meaning the hosts upstream would still be limited. Furthermore, even by piecing it up onto separate computers and drives all of the small chunks that were dled would have to revert back to a single mother drive anyway. In this case, all 99 computers would have to take turns sending the files back to the 1 computer's drive, which means the hard drive bottleneck is still there.

Its one of the most general rules of computing, a data transfer can only happen as fast as the slowest component involved.
