Customers Gleefully Mock Best Buy's $1,095.99 HDMI

puetzk Re:crap quality anyway (369 comments)

ACK. The highest standard mode I know of on ye olde D-sub is QXGA (2048Ã--1536px) @85Hz, which is about 4x the data rate of 1080p @30fps.

I even had a monitor that could run it... took pretty spendy cables though :-)

puetzk Re:25,000 Watts (348 comments)

AMD Launches First 45nm Shanghai CPUs

puetzk Re:Oh please. (264 comments)

Ordinary ECC will correct any single-bit error in a 64 bit word, and detect all 2 bit and most other errors. Chipkill ECC (same RAM, fancier memory controller) spread the codes across multiple words and is stronger still.

Average soft error rates for DRAM are about 1 bit flip/gigabyte/month (sea level up to about 10x that in Denver), mostly due to cosmic rays.
