6.8GHz 1TB RAM and 2TB HDD Laptop?

CmdrTaco posted more than 9 years ago | from the get-me-on-the-review-list-for-those dept.

Stuk writes "Research & development company AtomChip have announced a new 6.8GHz 1TB RAM and 2TB HDD laptop, which is "coming soon". Apparently it does not use a hard disc, instead it is based on "solid state AtomChip® optoelectronics". A new "non-volatile Quantum-Optical" type of RAM is used. Other features include voice commands, "Num Lock mode, Caps Lock mode, Scroll Lock mode". They're spoiling us." If Nintendogs has taught me anything, it's that voice recognition is awesome and should be used for everything. *cough*. And also to be skeptical of this many buzzwords.

The only reason I give this any credit is because the creator Shimon Gendlin has won multiple awards and unless he plans on retiring he would not make that bold of claims. On the other hand they claim the price will be $4.50 per GB of ram which is about the price of a pen with a light on it.

Hell no, it can't. The limit for 32-bit is 4 GB, and the limit for 64-bit is 128 GB.

In short, it can't even come close to recognizing that amount of physical memory. The article is complete and utter bullshit. Slashdot is dumber for having posted it as 'news', and we are all dumber for having read it.

How the hell did this get posted?

When I read the summary, I looked for the 'It's funny. Laugh' foot icon to the right, but my search was in vain...apparently, we're supposed to take this seriously.

In the article, there is a screenshot of a supposed 'System Properties' dialog box showing the following:
AtomChip(R) Quantum(R)

processor 6,80 Ghz, 1.00 TB of RAM

Never mind the indecision between using commas (6,80 Ghz) and decimal points (1.00 TB), but according to Microsoft [microsoft.com] , the most physical memory a Windows XP Professional system can support is 4 GB (or 128 GB for 64-bit edition [msdn.com] ).

In short, I call shennigans.

After reading that portion of the specification, I find it difficult to read the rest of it without laughing openly.

Nice try.

Let me play: I have a 1.4 Ghz Thinkpad, a 2.8 Ghz HP Presario laptop, and a 500 Mhz iBook. Using the logic from the specifications at that site, those three laptops mean that I have a single 4.7 Ghz laptop? If so, please tell me how I can get Tiger to run at that speed on that 500 Mhz iBook!

Who allowed this bullshit to go through ? First, no company that respect itself would show a web page like this one. Ok, their device (6.8ghz) to read their memory might be legit, but which intel board with the 855 support four pentium M, again ?

And their 2GB device, I mean, 2TB device, that use 5V and 2.5 --> MICRO -- amps to WRITE 6GB per second ? It would take much more just to have the circuit resistance beaten =)

They also claim 2000g operating shock .. Anyone know what that would do to this small 2GB flash dri.., err, 2TB ram :)

It's a really entertaining hoax, I think. Something to dream about, and long for the "future" when specs like this will be common. (-:

Most interesting with this is the way clueless media reports about it. Do a search for news at google and you'll find a few already picking up on it:

Yet another smudge on the apparently fine line between "news for nerds" and blatant rubbish. Mod me down all you like, really - how _did_ this get on the front page?

Does WinXP scale that high? (1)

Petaris (771874) | more than 9 years ago | (#13499796)

Just out of curiosity can WinXP SP2 even scale to those specs? I know *nix machines can and have, but I would be curious what issues might arise with reguards to memmory management.

Also What might the price tag be for such a toy, and does it have any other nice hardware? What about the graphics system, not to mention the system bus?

Will these bits be the bottle neck that makes that ultra fast processor and large RAM and storage cappasity preform no faster then a curent desktop?

Also if the solid state storage is so large and I would assume close to speed in the memmory, why have any memmory? Just fill it up with storage modules and there you go.

Just some thoughts,
