Pulsars: the GPS beacons of the cosmos

Re: @Thesheep (was: @jake)

It was only the 486DX onwards where the math co-pro was incorporated into the chip. 486SX no math co-pro.

386SX was a 32bit chip with a 16bit data bus - no math co-pro on board.

386DX was a 32bit chip with a 32bit data bus - no math co-pro on board.

387 Math co-pro's were separate chips.

The math co-pro was quite a bit dearer than the cpu back in the day.

Forget Xmas: Get set for the octocore v Bulldozer DEATHMATCH

Cache is king!

"According to the ISSCC abstract, Intel will be showing off a "12-wide issue" Itanium chip with eight multi-threaded cores that has a ring-based system interface and a combined cache on the die of 50 GB. That's a weird number, with the Itanium 9300 having 512 KB of L2 instruction cache, 256 GB of L2 data cache, and 6 MB of L3 cache per core. Just keeping all of those cache sizes the same and ramping up to eight cores puts you at 54 GB."

How much cache?? MB I think, not GB...

Paris cos I'm sure she's given a few bites..

Spot on review

Cracking review.

I wasn't aware that the single player and multi player were done by separate teams - makes sense now cos you can go prone and slide in single player but not in multi player :(

Also your gripe with spawning next to players under fire is also correct - another gripe is spawning MILES away from where the action is or spawning in the same predictable place under gun fire.

Single player not as good as BFBC2, multiplayer better than BFBC2.

Immensely enjoyable with a few friends - but it's only filling in until COD Black Ops is released.

Paris cos I'm sure she's fired a few guns..

This title is intentionally left blank

US Gallons < UK Gallons

Figures less impressive!

102.5MPGe = 85.3491 UK MPG - only 20more mpg than my '96 diesel that does 600+miles on a full tank.

Although if my car looked like a spaceship/or looked like it could fly, it would be more impressive ;p

Wonder how that Yamaha engine would fair on a motorbike...
