[TGDaily] AMD Leads Formula 1 Championship - Page 9

post #81 of 102
The car does not use electrical power for it to actually go fast. CPU Processing is only used to help the team work every day in their environment, not to help the speed of the car. Formula One currently uses four-stroke V8, naturally-aspirated reciprocating engines. They typically produce 224 kilowatts (300 bhp, 304 PS) per litre of displacement, far higher than most internal combustion engines. As i mentioned and someone else mentioned, now that traction control is banned a standard electronic unit is required, which basically helped the drivers under heavy braking, under acceleration and also some electronic software on their steering wheel which of course not avaliable under the standard ecu this year. Teams will no longer need to spend resources on developing their ECUs. Not good news if you’re an ECU software developer…

No processors on the engines what so ever. As txtmstjoe said They have mechanical parts like pistons and crankshafts and valves and chains. I think the only parts in a formula 1 team in which processing power is to take effect is mainly computer simulation playing a big role in the sport these days, also monitoring the car and logging data, which from a grand prix weekend is sent to the back of the garage on their super computers and probably sent back to their bases. Pauldovi this is not Formula Hybrid or any other sport that uses electronic power to the tyres, this is strictly engine related. AMD vs intel... would not make a difference in the formula 1 world as things are tight as it is... An intel processor would not give .. for example BMW the advantage over ferrari of say a tenth of a second per lap, its all down to the aerodynamics of the car, the engine, and of course this year the driver will make a hell of a difference.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ the guy who compared the CPU load wattage

The F1 cars dont actually have CPU's in them, lol @ the guy chatting about heatsinks

they do have CPU's. Just not in a sense of what you guys are talking about, they prolly use a RCC (MSD ignition, or something else) and they're fuel injected that's also controlled with air/speed/throttle measurements. Not very complicated, computerized none the less.

Ah, thanks for correcting me then man.

I didn't really know if they used CPUs or not, I was just going on the notion that they DID use onboard CPUs, because thats what people who posted before me said.

Thanks for clearing that up

But if F1 cars did use CPUs, AMD's would totally be faster

Paul, is this a joke? Do you have dyno numbers for comparison (hp/tq)?

Yeap! Cars use a novel way of controlling fuel/air mixtures and ignition timing. Some people use a system called "Megasquirt" that runs all your fuel injector timings through your laptop computer, so you can make on the fly adjustments and mess with timing from your computer. They do use a setup smiler to this, just way more complex because those are some expensive cars. Wouldn't doubt it having a quad core on the megasquirt setup though

ts a mute point anyway as engine development is barred and the ECU comes from the FIA directly so no team can modify or have a customer ECU
This is simply not true. A Ferrari is not going to run on the BMW ECU.......they are completely different motors and not to mention are probably controlled in a different manners. I'd like to see some FIA documentation that states this.

As of this year, it actually is. The FIA has finally amended the rules (for the good, in my opinion) and has a proprietary ECU issued to all the teams. The ECU is actually manufactured by McLaren Electronics, a subsidiary of the McLaren Group of companies to which the F1 team belongs.

The ECUs are the same, but the configurations thereof must be customized to the engines. But this eliminates the possibility of "hidden" electronics aids and other banned technologies escaping the FIA's scrutiny.

you can make any engine controller control any engine as long as it's got the right drivers(in ECU a driver is a board that takes measurements or controls something) as long as you can tune it, and I'm sure they can.
