Bill Gates sees processor clock speeds to top out at 10 GHz - Page 5

post #41 of 61
I read fairly recently that with the 32 nm proccesses they are brushing right up against the limitations of physics. they will need new materials and designs to push the envelope any further.

There are devices that operate at 10Ghz now, but they are simple devices. VERY simple devices. If any of you have taken a course in computer architecture, and know how mos-gates work and how important timing is in pipelining signals and instructions, I think you would appreciate the immense difficulty it is to create a processor above 5Ghz. But thats why Intel makes the big bucks =D

Hell, my 32-bit MIPS processor ran at something like 180Mhz and that was an achievement for me. It wasn't even pipelined!

this is friggin bill gates were talking about, he will just hire some people to re-write the laws of physics.

Well, you can't prove a negative. I choose to believe that he did say something of that ilk, if not those exact words. How else to explain the ridiculous DOS memory management...someone at Microsoft must have believed it, or they wouldn't have stuck with DOS's retarded memory management for so long.

Bill Gates is the founder of Microsoft. Having that title pretty much gives him access to the most advanced stuff in the world. Not only that... lets say there are 10ghz processors... wouldnt it be MS who would have to code apps to take advantage of it?

I'm not saying he is wrong at all, but didn't he make a horribly incorrect statement about memory a long time ago??

the way of the future is more core.. imagine a 2 or maybe 3 teraflops cpu with 40cores... 2020 might be that year.. and you know what? we wont see cpu with more than 2000mhz per core.. but who needs more?

Currently programs that are coded for one core, run on one core.
Programs that are coded for two will run on 1 or 2....bla bla bla...

I think a major reason that 4+ cores aren't that popular is because you don't have a huge advantage with a 2ghz quad over a 2ghz dual for programs that you would use in your personal life. When they find a way to take a program written for one core and distribute the calculations over many cores, that is when we will see huge leaps in processor performance...users like us could then own processors with 16+ cores at 2ghz each.
I believe that Bill Gates' statement about a SINGLE core reaching 10ghz is accurate...all you have to do is add more cores (and the load distribution system described above)
