1  Other / Off-topic / future AMD GPU chips on: June 15, 2011, 10:42:50 PM
one of most important innnovation - switching from [also finally deprecated even by iNtel/HP]VLIW to non-VLIW arch.
this mean two important things: with slighty degraded single-theaded workload efficiency, multi-threaded appz will boost considerably. and what MORE Important for both GPU and GPGPU usage, GPU will have significantly DECREASED latency.
ie, become more handy for real-time applications, from psysics , sound, math workload to real-time 3D-processing, ie more suitable to real-time procedual synth of textures/poly[instead of pumping pre-rendered ones thru onboard/system memory]
http://www.hardware.fr/news/11648/afds-architecture-futurs-gpus-amd.html
surely all developers[not only .theprodukkt] praise/warmly welcome such changes as well as promised improved SDK.
DP and QP computing power will reduece per/silicon, but overage performance "per watt" and flexibility, let alone lowest FPS in games - will tremendously boost.
major drawbacks is still in brains[not hardware]of engineers: they stick to shared memory concept/architecture/programming, not message-passing one,  well-developed, most suitable and dominating in mass-parallel computing/HPC market.
ie its step back from non-blocking dataflow to early UMA ages
some consider its advantage, citing Amiga, Acorn RISC , SGI Indy2/Octane and other DMA-based transparen IO-based boxes, but its passed away not w/o reasons and x86 still consist numerous armchairs/obstacles to defeat, like artificial/creepy innumerable/inefficient/unusable/dangerous interrupts usage.
so, moving to UMA arch will beneficiary only when box will break free from x86 legacy.
heil almighty/glorious MPI, Erlang and ARM !! Tongue

someone told me that's some things ~4x easier/faster in DC 5.x than in OpenCL 1.1, "thanks" to absence of [forgot name]something ?
p.s.
sorry for pointless/obscure question, but how can it be true and if, how its bitcoin-related/helpful ?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / BitCoin super-Hero ? on: May 25, 2011, 03:49:33 AM

and for how much bitcoins[just curous this time] ?

what happened ?
9  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / distributed marketplace ? on: May 23, 2011, 01:53:35 AM

10  Bitcoin / Mining / extremely stripped-down live-USB BTC-mining Linux distro on: May 21, 2011, 11:26:27 AM
is that possible to use something ultra-tiny, like DSL or TinyCore for mining, ie, bring OpenCL alive WITHOUT XOrg ? with directFB[hello, Linux kernel !]
or use lightweight distro, like Slackware based LiveCD's ?[SLAX]

p.s.
sorry 4 newb question.
