Re: Phalanx XXIII

Thanks! I'm stoked to see you working on Phalanx. After polishing and fixing leaks I look forward to some careful Hot Rodding :)

Re: 64 cores in an 8x8 array for US$200

The RISC cores are FP oriented throwing away any "complicated" integer instructions like multiplication and division ;) Looking it over it becomes obvious they are aimed at Perceptron, SVM, NN applications for recognition and classification tasks like voice, face, writing, surveillance ...

The Grenarrays chip certainly isn't anything like what you are implying. The Parallax neither but it lacks a bit omph.

Greenarrays has the GA144 and ZiiLABS the ZMS 5 to 40 already out with models with more cores also the Parallax Propeller offer an eight core chip.

Re: Proper way to learn c ?

I'd say reading the K&R book and working through a decent practical example like 'Let's build a compiler'. The book is short but informative and the project is the construction of a compiler for a subset of C. It's certainly doable in a week or two.

Re: My Raspberry Pi has arrived!

Performing speed benches on CPUs optimized for power efficiency is bound to be a letdown ;) Even the memory subsystem has been power optimized so it's slow in itself. You'll get much different results on newer designs that are trading a bit of power efficiency for performance on newer silicon proces...

Re: Did Anand miss a win in Game 3?

After 40. Kb3 playing out the pawn endgame after 40. .. Rxd7 is pretty forcing as well as illuminating ;) The superficial quip makes me wink impishly.

Re: which smartphone to buy?

I have a Galaxy Nexus and am quite content with it. Even though the next gen phones are coming out I still haven't lusted after the HTC One X or the Galaxy S3. I like the undiluted Android 4.0

Re: Comparative nodes per second

Some of the problems you perceive with evaluation might be down to a basic property of chess and the game theoretical result you are seeking. When you have a set and a graph there is no guarantee there is a total order but a partial order only.
