After MH370 case we have identical disappearance Intel's BRW EP/EX

The heterogeneous memory management (hmm) patchset implement a new api that sit on top of the mmu notifier api. It provides a simple api to device driver to mirror a process address space without having to lock or take reference on page and block them from being reclam or migrated. Any changes on a process address space is mirrored to the device page table by the hmm code. To achieve this not only we need each driver to implement a set of callback functions but hmm also interface itself in many key location of the mm code and fs code. Moreover hmm allow to migrate range of memory to the device remote memory to take advantages of its lower latency and higher bandwidth.

Some of our internal sources told us that the Enterprise declination of Broadwell architecture is recently disappeared from the latest Intel roadmaps. The Enterprise CPUs will go directly from Haswell to Skylake. ??
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: At IDF 2015 Intel CEO hinted Broadwell EP/EX will use XPoint DRAM4. Well, that seems quite justified reason for its roadmap disappearance on Lunedì, 13 Luglio 2015 10:01.

If math and physics don't lie MH 370 is here

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: 4819 km east from Diego Garcia island, just under the Inmar satelite. And 1000 km east from the last MH370 contact place. But wait, what about Maleysian radar seeings? They lied. What about Reunion MH370 flaperon ? Fake evidence. “If this had been the case with the MH370, one would expect much smaller debris than a flaperon,” said the expert. According to a Toulouse aeronautics expert who requested anonymity, the element of the wing would not have floated for several months at the water’s surface but would have drifted underwater a few meters deep.
Who responded to Vietnam flight control call ? Another plane that later landed on maleysian airport at pic above. But remember, both can't be right: Maleysian authorities and Inmarsat. Then chose your version yourself. Or check this airplane parking at South Kalimantan at distance 4819 km from Inmarsat projection. To get there you have distinct Doppler shift only south flying airplane get. Malayasian radar findings was nice distraction in just opposite direction.

Update on Intel's Xpoint: HDD is dead in 10 years !

Thin film PCMS as the initial option has one drawback Intel kept well hidden at announcement. It has SET time 10 times slower than DRAM. That means device  writing is stil 100 times faster than NAND's.
Yes, might be byte addressable and fast enough for NVDIMM
However, it is correct Intel's claim that PCMS is 1000 times more durable than NAND. Well ,100 times faster but not at least 100 times more durable should mean 100 times SHORTER writing device life span !Yes there is option for opening new blocks for writing, but inevitable complexity is with allocation table rewriting etc and overall realibility.
 In Xpoint G1 2016 we will get only 5 times better performance than NAND SSD. In G2 2016 are possible 25 better times, provided there is available so fast NVM interface!! See pic below.

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: NVDIMM version 500 times faster than NAND (that Micron named EM G1) is predicted for year 2017 with Purley Xeon ( see the previous post). Anyway, since 2006 HDD has been only arhive device, as Jim Gray from Microsoft noticed. After that year we have seen enterprise flash SSD reaching mainstream maturity. That is why China just before Xpoint announcement offered hefty $23 Billion for Micron and its production facilities.

Intel's Optane drive bested its top NAND based SSD 5X !

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: OK. After recent 1000X XPoint announcement we got more realistic 5X demo at queue depth of 8 ! And max 7X more performance at queue depth 1 ! We can clearly see from pic above that max peformance  improvement at time of drive production is 10X, and with average queue depth 8 mere 7X ! And what about announced 1000X improvement? Well, in time with technology scaling. I am only joking. Partner Micron promised in 2017 faster EM gen 1. Is it Xpoint too ? Who knows?. Well, lets try find out. Intel will initially offer slower PCM based NVM, that is exposed on pictures above. Is it Xpoint ? Hardly, being too expensive to be competitive with 3D NAND. However, if Intel's marketing 3D calls Xpoint it is quite another matter :)) Intel hint on bulk storage make this breaktrough actually years known technology that Micron quit a few years ago. Or if  the hint is fake, next to Bulk Transition solution, Tunnel Barrier. Filamentary ReRAM is anyway excluded.

HINT on Tunnel Barrier use is the sole name of technology: OPTANE !

However Purley server 2017 leak shows us support for Adams Pass memory interface 500X faster NVM. Well, that might be only XPoint and nothing else. There are two NVM technologies, for 2016 and 2017. 2016 one will compete with NAND, the 2017 one with volume DRAM4.  Briefly, byte addressable Xpoint 2017 will be 100 times faster than NVM delivered next year in two successions.

Batman killed in action !

 Broken Batmobil to blame.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Alelujah ! Though it was Batmobil classic, not a self driving one ! After Superman broke his spine riding a horse it is obviosly safer for heros to fly.

Definitely, no both scenarios for MH 370 !

Update: according to aviation sources, MH370's climb to 45,000 feet (well above its designed ceiling) would have probably required reducing weight by dumping fuel. This calls the accuracy of this altitude data into question.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: At 15 km altitude, with on board fuel for no less than 4400 km flight ?? NO ! It is however possible with previous fuel dumping, but there was no Mayday call ! Instead, good night to flight control from captain !! Then somebody lied on tehnical data, and it is really monstrous !.
Beside, satellite who caputered alleged later pings is directly above Diego Garcia naval base. They must be direct sat link connected !! Hail could brake airplane window that urged pilot to turn flight back to protect his CABIN !  RApid decompression should force him for steep down maneuvre and no respond to controll calls. Hail could disable ACAR and transporders too ! Anyway, the pilot had enough time to enable autopilot.

OTH radar at Diego Garcia able to detect small airplane at 3000 km distance

Well, if it is installed at all.  Here is what IS INSTALLED AT DIEGO GARCIA:
The GEODSS system can track objects as small as a basketball more than 20,000 miles away and is a vital part of the AFSPC's space surveillance network. Please note it is plascd South of Equator  in the West prevailing ocean currents ! Countervise to those North of Equator.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Somalija, MAdagascar, Reunion, JEmen, Mumbai in India, Indonesia western part, Cocos Island that belongs to Australia are in OTH RANGE. OTH means Over The Horizon.
SCHOCKA: No one could unrecognised get closer to Diego Garcia than 400 km !. Because of SPS 49 air radar (inside red range circle in a distance map above).

Is Apple new Atlantis ?

Lost $50B in a single day !!
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: However, profits still better than Google's !

Who censored MH370 flight from flightradar24 site ?

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Must be someone extremely powerfull. Like in Wikileaks case, flightradar is registered in Sweden ! By the way, below is what has been censored.
The current models said debris had likely been carried to the north towards the coast of Sumatra from the area off the west coast of Australia where the plane likely came down. However, place where it went down probably encircled on the pic above, is BELOW the equator, AND in the prevailing ocean currents towards island Reunion. Just in opposite direction.

Today's NAND flash has hit a development dead-end

 "She said that the NAND makers have dropped that project...and were putting all of their resources into 3D," Handy said. "So, yes, planar NAND ends at 15nm."
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: And Xpoint begins. But not before !!

Truth on Intel's logic nodes

Intel's so called high performance nodes are in 18nm ! Low power nodes 16nm and only high density designes inclouding logic in 14nm. High densisty is as you know, for caches, That is why we in so called NEW NODES see first at Intel SRAM wafers.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Is Intel's new strategy ( AFTER TICK TOCK) based on interleaved HALF NODES ??

Swarm cloud of drones, missiles and mothership airplanes

The project is still in its conceptual phase. The agency wants to begin experiments in 2017 and scale it up to testing “integrated air-air and precision strike kill chains” in 2019.
“It can take decades and cost billions of dollars to field or upgrade advanced airborne systems today,” said Nils Sandell, director of DARPA’s Strategic Technology Office (STO).
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Military future seems more as likely as advanced video games.

EXclusive: China develops 270 PFlops supercomputer

 100 PFlops China should reach  in 2015/6, and 270 PFlops in 2017/8 to compete with US Summit. 

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Each Summit node will contain multiple IBM POWER9 CPUs and NVIDIA Volta GPUs all connected together with NVIDIA’s high - speed NVLink and a huge amount of memory . Each node will have over half a terabyte of coherent memory (HBM “high bandwidth memory” + DDR4) addressable by all CPUs and GPUs , plus an additional 800 gigaby tes of NVRAM.

Well, nothing new for China. Beside NVRAM, it will use OWN, EXPORT BANNED FUTURE 8 TFlops accelerators. At the same number of Xeon nodes as at Tianhe 2, that should bring 8 times more average than its LINPACK Rmax od 33,4 PFlops. And that is exactly 270 PFlops. Test version should brake 100 Pflops by November this year or June 2016. Micron's new NVmemory was a God's gift, so China offered hefty $23B on 21st July.

Summit as mentioned before should deliver 10 times more performance than 27 PFlops Titan. That is the same 270 Pflops in 2017/8. Thus, the sumpercomputing  race is continuing on.

China sets up first unmanned factory; all processes are operated by robots

A Chinese firm specialising in precision technology has set up the first unmanned factory at Dongguan city where all the processes are operated by robots, regarded as futuristic solution to tide over China's looming demographic crisis and dependence on manual workers.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Each line has an automatic belt with just three workers who are just responsible for checking lines and monitoring. A few months ago, it required 650 workers to finish this process. A robot arm can replace six to eight workers, now there are 60 workers and the number will be reduced to 20 in the future.

EXCLUSIVE: IF YOU WERE MH370 pilot, what you should do ?

99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Just land airplane anywhere. Perhaps someone has been waiting with boat ??? But Boeing 777 will fell apart. No safe floating landing like at lake or river . Simply, 777 HAS NOT BEEN PROJECTED FOR SEA LANDING. After that search it at the deep ocean bottom.

EXCLUSIVE: How exactly Intel's new non volatile memory works

 Double Oxide Barriers work like two antiserial Shottky diodes with memory hysteresis. Switching speed is up to 10ns and number of  possible cycles is up to 10exp12, though reliability and process variance has been polished since 2011. We expect to see 8Mb memory banks in Micron products in year 2016. In 8GByte NV memories. Production geometry should be 18-20nm. In 2018 high performance 10nm geometries are envisioned.

Marine Corps finally declares the F-35B ready for combat

On 31 May 2013, the U.S. Marine Corps sent a letter to Congress saying they would reach F-35B initial operational capability between July and December 2015. For more than two years, the F-35 Joint Program Office, along with industry, has been working hand-in-hand with the Marines to achieve that goal. The fact the Marines reached IOC at the beginning of their six-month window is a testament to the professionalism and dedication of the entire F-35 enterprise.

Beware of flying rats

In third countries airplanes.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Able to cut ACAR cables.
