Qualcomm’s Massive 48-core ARM Chip Just Ain’t Gonna Fly

by Jim Turley

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

I would like to propose that any executive team that wants to ship/sell/use self driving cars on public roads, should be willing to submit to a self driving darwin test, where a public sourced gauntlet of worst case tests are constructed for that specific…

@dmlee: I'm gonna argue that increasing by zero X works mathematically. If capacity was represented by C, then increasing by zero X would be C+0*C=C

Actually, I claim "10 times smaller" works too, it just doesn't mean what most people who use it intend…
