Dumbing down computers in the name of national security?
Next week you will hear of the new direction for computers and how they are going to create motherboards with cpu's and graphics cards built in to
them. they will tell you its the way of the future and will be a improvement. But what really is going on?
Military computers run on memory not hard drives. The military use memory because incase the enemy over runs the camp you can turn them of and the
computers will be zeroed or erased. There computers don't have a hard drive because they don't want anything saved to disk like Bradley Manning did
with his flash drive. Makes since right!
Well the real story is kind of unbelievable. Why would anybody want to dumb down computers and how exactly does building one peice computer
motherboards, cpu and graphics card do that? Lets look at the tech out there that scares them.
The supercomputer. "Today, parallel designs are based on "off the shelf" server-class microprocessors, such as the PowerPC, Opteron, or Xeon, and
coprocessors like NVIDIA Tesla GPGPUs, AMD GPUs, IBM Cell, FPGAs. Most modern supercomputers are now highly-tuned computer clusters using commodity
processors combined with custom interconnects." So todays supercomputers are built with off the shelf components linked together. Just like this US
Military Play Station cluster. And yes Wikileaks has there own Play Station cluster. but what does this have to do with the dumbing down of computers.
Well the idea behind those clusters has moved to computers. yes the ability to connect multiple graphics cards together made it to computers. SLI and
Crossfire. First it was 2-way now its 4-way and soon it will look like the US military Play Station cluster. And the other portion of that idea of
Play Station cluster have been created, the ability to use those graphics cards for more than graphics. Nvidia Physx and now Nvidia Cuda. They offer
the ability to use those video cards as scientific processors connected to CPU's to make the CPU's even more powerful.
Well the Video card market never got flooded with military funding because they choose the Play Station gaming console as there video processor for
scientific processing. Now the CPU makers Intel and AMD both got in on the military funding along with software companies and other computer component
manufacturers. They were involed in Project Aurora, Project Boralis and Project Meddusa. Those projects were secret projects funded by the military
after 9/11 to create new processors to be used by the military. Stream processing engines infact. Thats why Project Aurora got confused with an
aircraft because it was a secret project to create a new engine funded by the Air Force.So you can see why the Military and Big Brother has control
over computer technology. They pumped billons into those companies and still do. Video card manufacturers were left out and there technology was not
limited due to government control. So how does the government gain control back by buying up those video card manufacturers through companies they
fund and control (Intel and AMD) then do away with video cards by incorporating them into the motherboard and CPU which they have control of.
Motherboards will delet the slots for video cards in the future and there problem is solved. They will say its the next big step in the computer
market to combine all these components into one board as a single component. but the real reason is to control the computers in the future and have no
more surprises like Wikileaks building there own supercomputer. They will tell you its because we live in a throw away society where it cost more to
repair then it does to buy a new one. But nobody ever repaired there components they bought new and better ones and updated there computers.
And how about memory on a computer. Intel motherboards have six slots for memory (24 gigs max),and AMD motherboards have four slots for memory(16 gigs
max). the military has been using 40 gigs or more of memory for a long time. Back in 2001 they decided to create laptops for the military that ran on
memory with no hard drives. If the laptop was taken all information on the computer would be gone when the power ran out or was turned off. With no
hard drive it could not be saved on the computer. Good if your base was over ran just turn the power off and all intel is zeroed out or erased. So why
has the memory on public computers been stuck for so long. Big Brother does not want you to have it. If you did then you could possibly spy on them
like Wikileaks is doing. If you can't open there files on your computer you can't see there files.
And I don't know if anybody tried to buy a computer for Christmas and found it was put on back order. Well Taiwan cut down on the number of
motherboards they produced and all computer makers ran out of motherboards. Could th real reason be they are prepareing to not make them any more and
start making there one piece design. I thought America was supposed to be the land of the free where we have more coices then any where else due to
freedom of the market. Don't make me laugh!
The militaries Play Station cluster.
The motherboard they don't want you to get.
When you get all that on one board don't forget to water cool it and cut those temperatures in half. The average CPU under heavy load will run at
150F. your memory under heavy load 90F. Not to mention your video cards and even your motherboard itself.
Computer water cooling.
Simple CPU Cooler
Or even a whole System Cooler
You can even go bigger water cooling your video cards with a bigger system.
