Bill Gates sees processor clock speeds to top out at 10 GHz - Page 6

post #51 of 61
Pentium 4 got pretty far, 8.5 GHz (disregard everything but the speed, not trying to form a discussion around it). It doesn't even matter about that to begin with, because it's the amount of work that the processor does per clock that matters. If you designed a P4 with 1 IPC, it could probably do 15-20 GHz.

Currently the human brain is much more powerful than any CPU, a Pentium 4 for example is something like 1,000,000 times more powerful than our brains. But the cells making up the brain can do many different things at once, allowing us to make incredibly complex calculations involving moving muscles just to single movement, just think of how many calculations your brain has to make on which muscle to manipulate to make one keystroke!

Ehh, not sure what you're getting at but it sounds like you're contradicting yourself .

The difference between the brain and the CPU is the way they do business. If the brain was coded like a computer, it would be faster then all the computers in the world combined, and then some.

CONTRADICTION!

I know what you intended though. The fastest computers today couldn't mimic the mind of a moth...

Actually truth, they might be more powerful than ours, but the way the Pentium 4 is used, one stream, one CPU, as opposed to millions of cells. Our brains pail in comparison to their speed and precision.

Yes it does sound like a contradiction, but it is true. I would explain it better but I don't exactly carry notes from lectures to work with me.

Already posted, but gates is pretty smart, maybe he has something to back up his predictions?

I'd agree with the statement. You have to think about it logically. Computer prossesing isn't a linear calculation. It's systamatic which doesn't mean the same thing. speed always seem to be well ahead of bandwidth and at the moment with CPU's bandwidth is very imature while the frequency is pushing boundries and hitting limits. Software is written for hardware so it's a mute point to say the software doens't use it. exact same issue with networks latency and bandwidth. just imuo

In addition, how many of you actually know how a CPU works? There are immensely complicated things going into each one. Branch prediction, length of pipelines, registers. Any of you who have taken any classes involving memory layout and locations, and CPU architecture (or some assembly) will know what I am talking about in relation to the complexity of a CPU. AMD take sone approach, Intel takes another, Natural selection (or divine creation) took yet another.

And the most powerful brain today couldn't mimic a calculator for the ability to calculate information quickly.

Biological computers (brains) and mechanical computers differ in how they're designed to function. It's like comparing motorcycles to cars, in that they're different vehicles entirely and while you can race one against the one it's one-sided because of the differences inherit to said vehicles.
