02:41 <efc3> moo

02:44 <Tank_Master> hi

02:57 <Tank_Master> so, the next mobo from asus for the nehalem CPU will support a mear 24GB of RAM....

02:57 <efc3> How many sockets?

02:57 <Tank_Master> 6

02:57 <Tank_Master> DDR3

02:57 <efc3> Wow, don't see a mb with 6 every day

02:57 <Tank_Master> itll be norm for the nehalem

02:58 <Tank_Master> they are trichannel

02:58 *** BadBarbarian has quit IRC

02:58 <Tank_Master> instead of dual

02:58 <Tank_Master> so its really 2 3-channels

02:59 <Tank_Master>

02:59 <Romulus> <> (at

03:00 <efc3> That and dual quads and we'll be set

03:00 <Tank_Master> try dual octi

03:00 <Tank_Master> next year intel will have a 8core CPU with hyperthreading...

03:00 <Tank_Master> 16 threads per CPU

03:01 <Tank_Master> 32 threads for a dual system!

03:01 <efc3> Oh yeah

03:02 <Tank_Master> things will be sweat next year

03:02 <efc3> Yeah, but they always have

03:02 <Tank_Master> lol

03:02 <Tank_Master> true

03:21 <Soul_keeper> hyperthreading sucks

03:23 <Tank_Master> heh

03:23 <Tank_Master> better than not having it

03:23 <Soul_keeper> kinda

03:24 <Soul_keeper> but i still don't like the idea of it coming back

03:24 <Tank_Master> this isnt the same as the P4 hyerthreading either

03:24 <Tank_Master> why?

03:24 <Soul_keeper> in my experience systems with hyperthreading are very unresponsive

03:24 <Tank_Master> you dont want more performance?

03:24 <Tank_Master> must be a linux thing

03:24 <Tank_Master> cus windows is more responsive

03:24 <Soul_keeper> especially if you increase process priorities or add more threads than available logical cores

03:25 <Soul_keeper> doubt it

03:25 <Soul_keeper> it's an architectural limitation

03:25 <Tank_Master> well, we will see

03:25 <Soul_keeper> if you share something between two cores, then that something becomes the limiting factor

03:25 <Tank_Master> things are differnt this time

03:25 <Soul_keeper> lol

03:25 <efc3> its probably the biggest help when apps are memory or IO bound

03:26 <Tank_Master> the nehalem is not a core CPU

03:26 <Soul_keeper> i'm hoping it'll be a flop like the willamette or prescott

03:26 <Tank_Master> its a new design

03:26 <Tank_Master> why?

03:26 <Soul_keeper> because the over dominance by a single player in the market place is no good for anyone imo

03:27 <Soul_keeper> i'm rooting for the underdog

03:27 <Tank_Master> even when its just because the compition cant come up with anything to compete?

03:27 <Tank_Master> ahh, I see

03:27 <Tank_Master> smae reson you go with linunx?

03:27 <Soul_keeper> i'd rather see 8 smaller cores, than 4 cores that can each execute 2 threads

03:27 <Soul_keeper> Tank_Master, i use linux for many reasons

03:27 <Tank_Master> oh, youll see 8 cores

03:28 <Tank_Master> with HT as well

03:28 <Soul_keeper> HT is just a poor way to go about multithreading imo

03:28 <Tank_Master> yeah, cus sittine idle is so much better

03:28 <Soul_keeper> but yeah we'll see

03:28 <Tank_Master> sitting*

03:29 <Soul_keeper> i expect them to scale less effectively

03:29 <Soul_keeper> as thread count rises that is

03:29 <Tank_Master> as in overclock?

03:29 <Soul_keeper> no

03:29 <Tank_Master> ahh, ok

03:29 <Tank_Master> yeah, till be interesting

03:30 <Soul_keeper> like say it can execute 8 threads (4 cores with HT)  if you run 16 threads or 32   i expect them to hit diminishing returns far sooner than a true native 8 core design

03:30 <Tank_Master> but why would you *want* to run like that?

03:30 <Soul_keeper> you will run like that if you want to or not

03:31 <Soul_keeper> there are always 100's of processes running on a typical comp

03:31 * efc3 monitors the progression of weed-fueled CPU design

03:31 <Tank_Master> o.O?

03:31 <Tank_Master> weed fueled?

03:31 * efc3 adds sleep-deprived insight

03:31 * Tank_Master pushes efc3 into a crevasse

03:31 * efc3 sets off an LHC

03:31 <Soul_keeper> i could understand sharing a  unit or cluster of transistors  between two cores if they were clocked twice as high as the rest of the cpu ....

03:33 <Soul_keeper> by most calculations HT in the past only gave 30-40% increase, instead of the 50% you'd get from true dual core,   as load levels increase the numbers get worse

03:33 <efc3> they are probably seeing the CPUs being stalled worse and worse on memory latency and looking for some way around it

03:33 <Soul_keeper> i think it's mostly a marketing ploy by intel

03:33 <Soul_keeper> to say they got to 16 first or whatever

03:33 <Tank_Master> no, they are just trying to get mre throughput

03:33 <Tank_Master> more*

03:33 * efc3 wishes sci-fi channel would revise their no-skin policy

03:34 <Soul_keeper> but yeah we'll see

03:34 <Soul_keeper> lol

03:34 <efc3> it does seem to actually help my s@h throughput

03:34 <Tank_Master> instead of doubleing the core size, they can increase the size by 5-10% and get 25% increase in performance

03:34 <Tank_Master> its more economical to produce

03:35 <Tank_Master> would be mu assumtion why they do it

03:35 <efc3> The problem with it is, they reduce the already limited L2 cache resources available to each threat

03:35 <efc3> thread

03:35 <Soul_keeper> i'm not convinced of that, but i see where you're coming from

03:35 <Tank_Master> and to say "we can do something the other guy cant"

03:35 <Tank_Master> :P

03:36 <Tank_Master> efc - the nehalem only has something like 128k cache

03:36 <Soul_keeper> the integrated memory controller, and tri channel mem will likely be the most significant thing they'll bring to the table

03:36 * efc3 imagines a pay version of sci fi with these irritating restrictions removed

03:36 <Tank_Master> and the L3 cache

03:36 <efc3> 128k L2? Thats a disaster

03:36 <Tank_Master> that all 4 cores 8 threads acan access and update at once

03:36 <Tank_Master> you dont need much with the L3

03:37 <Tank_Master> its the L3 that is shared

03:37 <Soul_keeper> efc3, yeah those women on the new star trek would be welcome on my tv under than circumstances :)

03:38 * efc3 imagines edited versions of movies: with extra nudity and other goodies inserted instead of censored

03:38 <Tank_Master> heh

03:38 <Tank_Master> go to bed, efc

03:38 * efc3 finds this prospect more interesting than 16 core CPUs that still take 10 minutes to boot

03:38 <efc3> Like.. they'll add these clips.. that aren't even the same actors.. and it won't matter

03:38 * Tank_Master shoves a SSD up efc's nose

03:38 <Tank_Master> thatll boot faster

03:39 <efc3> Increases my uptime ?

03:39 <Tank_Master> yes

03:39 <Tank_Master> you sont be sleeping with that there

03:39 <Tank_Master> wont*

03:39 <Soul_keeper> am i the only one that gets tired and angry when he reads a book ?

03:40 <efc3> Also, we can create these scenes with Quake 1 or Apple II level animated characters

03:40 <Tank_Master> I dont read books

03:40 <efc3> i do too soul

03:40 <Soul_keeper> the fact that the book was about probabilities and mathematics probably didn't help ...

03:40 <efc3> made it through like 3 chapters of a law book

03:40 <Tank_Master> lol

03:40 <Tank_Master> burn it

03:40 <Soul_keeper> i was about 1/3rd of the way thru the second chapter and they started talking about fibonacci crap, i got angry as hell

03:41 <Soul_keeper> thru the book down

03:41 <efc3> Fibonacci's radical ideologies cannot be allowed to spread

03:41 <efc3> We must sieze the means of enumeration, comrades

03:41 <Soul_keeper> apparently the pope endorsed his book tho ...

03:42 <Tank_Master> and we all know how wise the poope is...

03:42 <efc3> A final condemnation

03:42 <Tank_Master> lol

03:42 <Tank_Master> defently an expert to speak on such matters

03:42 <efc3> right next to endorsing the book about the earth-centered universe probably

03:42 <Soul_keeper> the first chapter was great tho, it was talking about the history of gambling

03:43 <Soul_keeper> now i guess i have to go to sleep :)

03:43 <Soul_keeper> i got myself hooked on a video game

03:44 <efc3> which one>?

03:44 <Soul_keeper> need my sleep so i can play it for most of tomarrow

15:05 <Tank_Master> you see my last post?

15:05 <nickuwo> yea, I reset it this morning - zietgiest thinks it should be a tad higher, so i'll probably do that -- sound good?

15:06 <Tank_Master> I just got back, ill have to ready it

15:06 <nickuwo> ok

15:06 <PovAddict> hrm

15:06 <PovAddict> ramsey

15:06 <PovAddict> do I have an account there I wonder...

15:06 <Tank_Master> Id still like to know whay, with only 20 WUs lef, al so the 24 or 26th, my client doent think itll finish them i ntime

15:06 <Tank_Master> in time*

15:07 <Tank_Master> all do*

15:08 <Tank_Master> as long as the server stays up, 50 a core should be fine

15:08 <Tank_Master> at 30 min a WU, thats still enough for a day's worth of work

15:09 <nickuwo> clients are temperamental apparently

15:09 <Tank_Master> so just as long as you arnt offline for more than a few hrs, there should be any prob

15:09 <Tank_Master> yeah, they can be

15:09 <Tank_Master> and I must use 6.3.10 for a different project

15:09 <PovAddict> hmm I do have a ramsey account

15:09 <PovAddict> just wrong pw >.<

15:13 <nickuwo> nice, thx yoyo

15:13 <CoderForLife> hey folks

15:13 <PovAddict> Tank_Master spreading BS and making yoyo responsible? :P

15:13 <Tank_Master> yoy - nick was the admin I was telling you about that wanted to know how to limit the WUs per host

15:13 <yoyo[RKN]> urks

15:14 <Tank_Master> PovAddict - as always

15:14 <yoyo[RKN]> but I'm responsoble for everything only on Tuesdays

15:14 <Tank_Master> lol

15:15 <Tank_Master> so if cern blows up the world on a tuesday, its your fault?

15:15 <yoyo[RKN]> yes

15:15 <CoderForLife> that follows...

15:15 <Tank_Master> ok

15:15 <PovAddict> dad changing electric outlets

15:15 <Tank_Master> then I know who to sue should the world be distroyed on a tuesday

15:15 <CoderForLife> the first thing we do here is assign blame

15:15 <PovAddict> needs to disconnect house's power :)

15:15 <PovAddict> bbl

15:15 <yoyo[RKN]> you can blame me for the black hole afterwards on wednesday

15:16 <PovAddict> and it's yoyo's fault that the outlets are broken btw

15:16 <PovAddict> bye

20:21 <CoderForLife> what is normal?

20:22 <xcamel> 1. According to an established norm, rule, or principle;

20:22 <xcamel>       conformed to a type, standard, or regular form; performing

20:22 <xcamel>       the proper functions; not abnormal; regular; natural;

20:22 <xcamel>       analogical.

20:23 <CoderForLife> ah, science fiction

20:25 <CoderForLife> lol   Google Maps wouldn't steer me wrong =)

20:26 <CoderForLife> I reverse the directions, and it takes me a completely different path

20:27 <xcamel> on the other hand, you have more fingers...

20:28 <CoderForLife> my directions read like those, they say: "1. Head southeast on Lemmon Ave go 56 ft     2. Make a U-turn  go 0.2 mi"
