Then what ?
1TB XPoint DIMM and a 16GB DIMM RAM cache would be more than enough performance wise.

Then what ?
1TB XPoint DIMM and a 16GB DIMM RAM cache would be more than enough performance wise.
Of course Einstein was wrong.. but the Big Bang theory is wrong too!
There is no fixed speed of light. The fact that complex mathematical models and equations seem to work correctly with a fixed speed of light at least here on Earth mean absolutely nothing.
Any science claiming to have found "the laws of nature" is deadly wrong from the start.
A mathematical model can seem to be perfect and a law with limited knowledge in a limited area but it doesn't mean that is the law of all universes and it works everywhere.
The myth of opensource and Linux being secure....
This is far from a bug. it clearly is a backdoor designed on purpose to be there that way. One can only wonder any many backdoors could be active in a Linux system that only a few know anything about.
Stop whining. Start killing Microsoft instead!
Oh yeah.. competition is good... yep.. unless manufacturers are releasing low quality subpar and just bad products like all the Google Android crap tablets and smartphones and the AMD CPUs and GPUs that are a silly joke.
The fake next-gen consoles Playstation4 and XBoxOne and Playstation4Pro and XBox Scorpio all AMD big fraud based selling absolute crap with marketing lies all fake specifications numbers and such.
No, that is not good competition. Junk products on the market is not good competition at all.
Although there are fools and idiots buying those frauds it doesn't mean that anyone should.
AMD, Google and Android manufacturers all deserve to go bankrupt and be put in jail for the frauds they do selling crap products.
Microsoft employees are on the influence of some really heavy drugs, indeed... the statement: "Just as in Windows NT we took a scenario that only the princes and high priests of technology could do" ... well it is just beyond crazy.
Windows Server 2016 is going to be a huge mess overall. Just like Server 2012 wasn't messed up already. Since the whole Metro/ModernUI nonsense began anything good that was done with Windows7 and Server2008/2008 R2 was lost. Then Windows8.2=10 happened and now The Server2016 aka Windows10 Camouflaged For The Enterprise is going to be even worse.
All this campaign against Intel/Micron 3D XPoint... who is really behind it?
Competitors must be seriously worried for funding such bashing campaigns...
Windows Server 2016 is going to be a huge awful mess just like Windows8.2=10
It is the same crap all over again.
How Microsoft managed to turn Windows into a dangerous virus
The real question here is ... who is behind all these rumors telling that the Intel XPoint would be a huge disappointment and Intel just kept lying , uh?
Competitors selling the unreliable NAND Flash crap SSD do not want Intel/Micron 3D XPoint technology to succeed because if that happens they would start losing money and would have to quickly spend billions trying to come up with a competing technology as fast and reliable as the 3D XPoint is going to be.
The SSD NAND are overpriced unreliable mostly defective products. The industry is full of cheaters and thieves selling the worst.
As usual they cover up everything. "Aliens do not exist" so they have to tell the human population... lies nothing more than silly pathetic lies for ages.
Killing the childish awful unusable Metro/ModernUI nonsense would be a good thing indeed and a 3D UI is what Windows should have had long time ago ***BUT*** forcing users to get a VR headset ???
THAT IS JUST PLAIN STUPID. Way worse than the Metro/ModernUI crap already.
The VR headsets facade is going to die quicker than the fake 3D stereoscopic glasses crap.
So Microsoft wants Windows users to get an headache and puke while using Windows thanks to the crap VR headsets, uh?
Microsoft managers and CEO must be on some heavy drugs these days.
Since when a 10x meaning 1000% performance increase would be a bad thing, uh?
Z-NAND is still just crap NAND. So unreliable.
3D XPoint main selling point is top-notch reliability first and then higher performance that NAND technology just can't feature even in its most expensive SLC configuration.
More cheap NAND SSD crap. MLC, TLC, QLC .. only a fool would waste money on unreliable products like these.
SLC NAND is the bare minimum to get some reliability for enterprise and professional use.
3D XPoint is going to change that and make all NAND flash based SSD drives obsolete.
Expensive 60TB or 100TB MLC NAND is just wasting money. Unreliable for any proper professional enterprise use.
Enterprise class SLC is the bare minimum type of NAND to be used to get some reliability.
3D XPoint is going to make sense buying expensive 60TB, 100TB or 500TB or higher config.
NAND even SLC is a huge risk. Anything MLC and TLC is just useless.
Since the Metro/ModernUI plague Microsoft has been unable to design a usable good UI.
And this proves it once again.
All their UIs just plain suck. The flat thing for them is just a way to go ultra cheap than not even an alpha prototype crap software should look so bad.
NAND flash will be useless and die quickly with such a usage scheme.
3D XPoint is going be as reliable as RAM and way faster than NAND so used as a RAM cache makes sense.
This product with NAND configured as cache is completely useless and unreliable.
Microsoft must be fined $500billion and disappear as it deserves for this mess!
Microsoft and Google are criminal companies backed by political mafia with an hidden agenda.
They must be shutdown. They are a cancer to the whole industry.
Consumer hard disk drives have rarely been so expensive and surely not in the last 15 years or so.
Selling at sky high prices products like hard disks even the consumer models that rarely last more years than their warranty is a huge mistake business wise.
Hard Disk drives should be cheap and manufacturers should earn from huge quantities sold first.
Enterprise models being expensive is a minor issue for most large businesses that can afford buying thousands if not millions each year anyway.
With prices so high Seagate is losing millions of customers.
DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 support in virtual machines is absolutely needed. But still no one added support for it.
No software patching crap can fix a bad hardware design.
The RX 480 is not PCI-Express compliant !
It isn't a safe product to use either because it can destroy the motherboard.
So a software bug in any new driver release and the fix couldn't work either... so safe.. uh?
AMD must not be allowed to get away with this !
They should replace all the defective cards. Re-design the RX 480 and stop selling the defective designs. Period.
The Clinton Kennedy mafia with the muslim Al Qaeda cell Barack Hussein Obama at the White House.
And Trump is the Clinton puppet , trojan horse made to destroy the GOP.
The US is not a democracy anymore thanks to these criminals.
"He characterises a XEON core as having 150MB/sec bandwidth." WHAT ? What ancient Xeon is he talking about?
Sales and marketing staff is a shameful thing. Only a few are needed actually and if and when with their "tricks" find a way to be in charge of any business the results always are worse products, bad customers supprot and a lot of money stolen inside the group.
So firing most of them is a very good thing.
Now Intel can hire more engineers and programmers.
"In early 2002, Bill Gates' famous "battleship-turning" memo made cybersecurity a top goal for Microsoft. About a year later, Microsoft proposed a new "bounds-checking" library to WG14, which eventually became Technical Report 24731-1. It now is part of C11 as the (optional) Annex K."
The fake next-gen consoles facade keeps going...
More obsolete cheap hardware from AMD that without these illegal scam operations with Sony and Microsoft to sell fake next-gen consoles to sheep believing the fake numbers and marketing lies would have gone bankrupt long time ago already.
4K gaming on what? An AMD APU ? Polaris GPU ? Zen cores (which won't even match a Core i5) ?
A Nvidia 1080 is the bare minimum to play games at a sustained true 4K 30fps to 45fps average. That along with an Intel Core i7 6-core CPU indeed.
The AMD Polaris GPUs don't have a chance to even guarantee proper 2K 60fps gaming. At best 1080p 60fps is the only thing they can achieve. Go figure!
So XBox One Scorpio and Playstation4 Neo are going to be just the continuation of the current fake next-gen consoles fraud. Nothing more than that.
Sony, Microsoft and AMD CEOs and managers must be put in jail where they belong.
3D NAND is a dead thing. 3D XPoint might kill the HDUs in a few years...
The NAND flash technology has always been unreliable and just plain bad. It is a waste of money and only idiots would put any enterprise mission critical system running on NAND flash based drives only whatever the RAID level used.
3D XPoint maybe 10 years from now might be able to replace the Hard Disk drives and kill them. Surely not sooner anyway.
The fake Google ecosystem that is the huge Android fraud with the illegal use of Java by Google won't survive going closed source and having OEMs obliged to do what Google tells them to.
So far Google managed to make money with the mess they created only thanks to using devices to spy on customers and resell data along with ads.
If now they piss off their gang of manufacturers their fraud system will just collapse quickly.
They might have a chance to shut it down completely and creating something else maybe But forcing anything on the Android mess is going to backfired badly. They are doomed to be destroyed by their own mess.
The corrupted justice system made of mad judges and lawyers with brains fried by drugs use/abuse. Some really heavy drugs indeed.
All these judges and lawyers should be killed as traitors and replaced with some better people. This is a corrupted dangerous justice system that is just killing all of us. The world is getting worse thanks to these criminals. And the real criminals love them so much because these bad people are helping terrorists and criminals of all sorts 24/7 and that can't keep going on forever, either these get terminated or the world ends due to them.
Microsoft doesn't care about the noise.
They think to be untouchables because they have full protection of corrupted politicians and judges and because they don't care about their customers nor quality of their products.
Noise will change nothing.
Microsoft must disappear. They deserve to. Enough is enough.
It is time for Microsoft to disappear.
The Surface crap is just like the Windows8.0, 8.1 and 8.2=10 crap and the WindowsPhone crap all with the Metro/ModernUI unusable childish nonsense.
People must stop buying anything from Microsoft.
Corrupted justice system that is all that is there.
Google should be fined billions for what they do, they are a cancer in the industry just like Facebook and Microsoft.
This Microsoft is the worst one ever seen.
Windows7 was a miracle but there is no chance of anything good ever gain from Microsoft.
They must go bankrupt.
This is all marketing b*ll.
There is no 10 years hacker cracking servers in the world.
Just urban myths created by the marketing dept guys.
This is just once again another silly story spread on the 'net by the marketing people.
"Today, only a third of connected devices are Microsoft devices" .. 1/3rd ? 30% ? Since when?
Tablet market share for Surface is in the 10% to 15% range.
Smartphone market share for Windows Mobile is around 3% to 4%
Is Netgear going to use this new Cavium on their next flagship VPN routers? The SRX5308 is using a Cavium MIPS.
"high quality music private torrent site that requires its users to pass an interview testing their knowledge of audio matters before they are granted an account."
So it is an illegal site. Not a legal shop selling lossless FLAC encoded music contents.
You are seriously trying to compare analog cameras on film to Hard Disk Drives ? Really?
You have no clue what you are talking about.
And then SSD NAND would be the new digital camera?
And so what would the 3D XPoint SSD be?
There is no death of Hard Disk Drives and SSD.
It is all b*ll and lies. Smoke and mirrors. Nothing else.
Manufacturers cheating and hiding money... That is what is really happening.
People buy more HDUs and SSD now than ever before. And faster internet connections in major countries means higher demand.
The enterprise sector needs more drives and data centers for cloud services or not need to buy more units.
So these manufacturers now claiming to be losing money and no one buying drives anymore are just liars and telling b*ll.
Corrupted multinationals managers. That is the real issues.
And the myth that no one would be buying Hard Disk Drives anymore... the biggest lie ever.
Only Intel/Micron 3D XPoint could in the future kill the Hard Disk Drive. But that isn't going to happen anytime soon anyway. For sure 3D XPoint is going to kill the unreliable NAND SSD tech.
So any business would trash its precious reliable LTO drives and tapes to store all its most precious and confidential data on a remote slow cloud service offered by Google which is using LTO drives and tapes in its own data center anyway...
NAND drives are unreliable. Even the most expensive Enterprise Class SLC ones.
Intel 3D XPoint is going to change that. But NAND is not an option reliability wise compared to hard disk.
They should make 5.25 hard disk drives with current technologies. It would be quite easy to release 50TB hard disk drives right now and 200TB in the next 3-4 years.
"Windows simply cannot do what Linux can do under the hood and the old Windows Unix subsystem and Cygwin show the limitations."
VMS can do everything UNIX systems do under the hood. VMS was created as the main competitor to UNIX in the first place.
WindowsNT is a new version of VMS that Microsoft paid the creator of VMS to write for them.
Only for idiots installing Windows8.2=10 spyware...
..they add an on-the-fly translator for Linux binaries on the crap that is Windows10 in a hope that more people would love installing that.
Car thieves will be very happy with it... they will be able to hack into cars and steal quicker thanks to the open source scam.
"Then, in order for this to make sense, you have to change the tapes. And THIS is the problem. Somebody changing tapes is EXPENSIVE."
Nonsense. If you need more tapes you buy a tape loader LTO drive and not a single unit. They are more expensive indeed but it is not a consumer type product.
LTO tape drives are speed adaptive anyway, if maximum sustained drive speed can't be achieve from the source the drive would just slow down.
You are the one emotionally driven here with your childish crusade against LTO tape archiving trying to tell that no one would be buying it and even LTO-8 won't happen.
You don't have a clue.
Data Center and Enterprise business sectors need LTO tape archiving. Without it costs would quadruple or worse.
You are babbling nonsense silly stats and numbers based on nothing trying to disprove reality.
It is not that the LTO tapes have just been released on the market now! It is its 7th generation.
Also IBM and Sun Oracle still have their own proprietary high-end tape archiving formats which are not LTO and they aren't going to stop releasing new higher capacity models in the coming years.
And you keep telling that no one is buying the drives and it is a declining market and other nonsense.
There is nothing better to replace tape drives technology. And there won't be anything for the next 10 years or more at least.
If a new better technology appears on the market surely the tapes tech might be in trouble and stop being developed BUT until then either tapes or waste of money and lack of reliability for anyone that is not doing his/her job properly in any Data Center or Enterprise.
Re: Incorrect extrapolation - wrong commercial understanding
All you have done is re-iterate "I see good technical reasons to go on buying this stuff"
I don't know your sector and have no reason to disbelieve you.
I do not dispute that it "would" still be cheaper in 10 years time* [for some customers]
I do dispute that anyone will (or is) investing 100M of their own money to make it for you. Low margins and a *shrinking* market. I've done loads of pitches, and I've just never seen one proposing to invest for a shrinking tech. Ever. They are all either - this market grows by 10% CAGR and will go on doing so forever; or this market is heading for the stars - 60% CAGR, disruptive play, blah
This is a pure numbers game % ROI. Take the emotion out."
