Ali G and Kanazawa on UltraSPARC T2 (nee Niagara 2)
By hendel on Aug 07, 2007
With the announcement of the UltraSPARC T2 processor it is time to spare you my tired words on life, technology, and the pursuit of happiness, and defer to two great video guests: Hirokasu Kanazawa and Ali G.
Hirokasu Kanazawa, a most graceful martial artist, demonstrates the power of combination attacks. The 1-2 punch. Kanazawa teaches rapid succession of techniques, the second being more powerful than the first. Just like the succession of CMT processors UltraSPARC T1 and T2 (aka Niagara 2), a well executed combination is more effective than its individual parts.
Then we turn to none other than Ali G, hosting a science and technology expert panel. Ali G explores if massive computing capabilities (like the UltraSPARC T2), can make our lives better. He wisely probes if such machines can really tackle large multiplications without blowing up (a clear allusion to the power and thermal challenges of pre-CMT processors).
Niagara 2 themes, by two of the best.
Keep it real.
