However this gets done - whether it is using future dual-core Opterons, using Opterons with beefed up floating point units that can do twice as many instructions per clock
, or using a cluster with twice as many processors - the 40 teraflops level seems to be what Cray, AMD, and now SuSE are striving for.
Bandwidth: The 16-bit, wide, parallel Ultra ATA bus is capable of transmitting two bytes of data per clock
. Though Serial ATA transmits only a single bit per clock
, the serial bus may be run at a much higher speed to compensate for the loss of parallelism.
This will show up in the form of material wastage and labour and machine inefficiencies--eg, standard hours per clock
hour--as operators get to grips with the demands of new customers and the features of new materials and processes.
With QuantiSpeed architecture, AMD Athlon MP processors deliver extra performance by increasing the amount of work done per clock
cycle, while offering fully-featured logic implementation based on Smart MP technology to ensure smarter multiprocessing.
The U500 PCI includes up to eight axes of motion control per card and features a 240 MIPS DSP with single instruction per clock
cycle execution, 48 digital I/O points, up to 5 MB on-board memory, 62.5 [micro]s minimum servo update, 32 MHz input data rate, and high-speed Position Synchronized Output for laser firing or data acquisition.
The GeForce2 GTS achieves an astounding four pixels per clock
(dual-textured) or eight texels per clock
and delivers 1.6 billion texels (or 1.6 gigatexels) per second -- more than twice the performance of the award-winning GeForce 256(TM) and more than three times the texture processing power of any competitive consumer graphics product.
Diamond Multimedia's Viper V550 retail configuration, available in AGP 2X and PCI versions, features NVIDIA's RIVA TNT processor, the first single-chip 128-bit 3D processor able to process two pixels per clock
cycle to provide true single-pass multi-texturing for exceptional 3D realism.
The POWER3, first introduced last October in IBM's most powerful RS/6000 workstation, the 43P Model 260, is the company's most advanced microprocessor with the ability to perform up to eight operations per clock
Now support employees--in titles ranging from secretary to warehouse attendant--are paid $3 per clock
hour, up to 150 hours per year, for completion of professional growth courses.
1 maximum number of activities scheduled per clock
The 603 is also superscalar, capable of dispatching 3 instructions per clock
, in-order, into 5 concurrent execution units.
(The 80486 can handle one instruction per clock
cycle; the 80386 can handle one per two cycles.)
This gives a throughput of only one instruction every two clock cycles, while a similar code using XMM registers would have a maximum throughput of two instructions per clock
handle per clock
cycle over previous AMD architectures.
Ever since we've started hearing about Ryzen, AMD has been going on about a 40% increase in Instructions Per Clock
(IPC), and today we saw that they'd gone well past that goal to hit 52%.
