READ first

Atomic Holographic optical image data storage bandwidth is 400,000 times faster than binary bit text processing bandwidths used in todays storage technology.

400k x faster than all of the current storage bandwidth is enough right?

and formatting has 2 types

one is the quick and the other is the full
in the quick format you remove only the file tables but not erasing the binary contents of files just their main map and list.

in the full format you delete the table and replace the whole harddisk bit per bit with ZEROs.

neither way even if you take to format it to full you get to replace the ZEROS again with your files like in the quick format so doing a full format doesnt make any sense rly.

lets say usb bandwidth is 60 MB/s x 400,000 (approx) = 24 000 000 MB/s
copy DVDs in seconds (HDD to HDD not reader to HDD)

and if this is your HDD bandwitdh you'll load your WINDOWS , other OS in seconds Gigabyte I-RAM (RAM as DISK) is the fastest after the spintronics fe disk which is 300MB/sec can load windows less than 5 seconds (see youtube videos) what's more with that 1m+ MB/s that spintronics can bring.

Thread Starter 
I gotta download this new freeware game.

What? 100GB? Freakin' small game.

EDIT: Not going to lie, I didn't realize that I originally posted this thread when I posted this.

i-ram 300MB/sec >.> they cant stack beyond 4 pieces of RAM modules on i-RAM better use the old spinning harddisk or the new fe disk

the human bnrain could hold more than you know if you only use it.

its the fastest processor though
To put things in perspective, let's start with the computer sitting on your desk -- the computer you use on a day-to-day basis to browse the Internet, handle spreadsheets, create documents, etc. Most people have something like a Pentium computer running Windows, or a Macintosh. A computer like this can execute approximately 100 million instructions per second. Your particular machine might be twice that fast or half that fast, but that's the ballpark.

The fastest computer in the world is much faster than that, and it is sitting right on top of your shoulders! The human brain is an amazing computing device and the fastest processor available right now. Let me give you an example:

Your desktop computer is just starting to get to the point where it can "understand" speech and take dictation, translating spoken words into written words. It can only understand one speaker, and that speaker has to train it for about 20 minutes, and the dictation software will still make a lot of mistakes. So 100 million instructions per second can barely handle dictation.

Your brain, on the other hand, can understand any number of speakers. It needs no training and will make zero mistakes. It may even be able to understand multiple languages! And the speech processing portion of your brain is just one small part of the whole package -- your brain can also process complex visual images, control your entire body, understand conceptual problems and create new ideas. Your brain is made up of about one trillion cells with 100 trillion connections between those cells. We might take a rough estimate and say it is handling 10 quadrillion instructions per second, but it really is hard to say.

In the 2006 TOP500 list, which ranks supercomputers by speed, the top three supercomputers are as follows:

1. IBM's BlueGene/L - 360 teraflops
2. IBM's BGW - 115 teraflops
3. IBM's ASC Purple - 93 teraflops

Another supercomputer called MDGrape-3, built by the Japanese company RIKEN, has a theoretical maximum speed of 1 petaflop (1 guadrillion operations per second), which is three times faster than the BlueGene/L. But MDGrape-3 can't run the official ranking software of the TOP500 list, so BlueGene/L remains at the top of the list at 360 trillion operations per second, which is pretty fast...but it's still not as fast as your brain.

I wonder if your brain can even store that much data? lol
post #49 of 169
Lol, I was thinking "The hardisk that lives through generations. No need to retrace your family history! Starting today, thanks to our new Peta-Drive, live the moments of your generation, and previous generation! Not to forget that our MTBF is only a couple years, so get ready for some massive backuping! Only a thousand Terabyte HDDs are required in order to backup all your data! Buy Now! BUT HOLD ON! Order in the next 20 minutes and you will receive a free reformat CD that takes only 6 months to format!"
