Graphene Transistors 10x Faster Than Silicon

Evan Meakyl Re:3D chips (170 comments)

I think that a kind of fractal volume for the CPU (which will maximize the surface between the cooling fluid and the heating parts of the CPU) could be pretty cool (no pun intended!), but quite hard to manufacture.

IE8 Beats Other Browsers In Laptop Battery Life

Evan Meakyl In other news (263 comments)

Chrome beats other browsers by 4% in sound card usage.
Seriously, I don't think the "raw" laptop battery life means something else that what it means...

What would be somehow an interesting test is to measure the number of cycles/instructions a browser needs to:
* load a page.
* render a page.
* animate a page during 1 minutes.
Of course, with parallelism, it surely isn't as simple as that, but at least it would give an hint about the efficiency of your browser. Maybe someone can come with a more interesting test?
