New Technology

April 6, 2005

Sitting here in Temasek Poly on a 5 year old Windows NT computer has made me realise how important it is to have a fast computer. And why people with faster computers can’t be the only ones buying my company’s software? Right opposite is a lab with 21inch plasma screens. While I am sitting here twiddling my thumbs on an excruciatingly slow computer. This, after working on an AMD Opteron(64 bit) dual processor system with 2gig ram. Bloody Hell.

    We have 6 of those (2G/proc = 24G total). But only for parallel programs. My usual work comp is 1 proc Sun 1.5G. Decent but opteron blows it away. – Saurabh
