RLE acceleration hardware for nextgen graphics ?! ;) :)
Hello, Last time I saw/heared/read John Carmack (the famous programmer of Doom and Quake) talking about nextgen graphics rendering technology he showed a demo of "voxel/volume" based rendering. Such voxel's/volume's based rendering would probably need special hardware to quickly compresses and decompress vo... 26 May 2010 19:09

1 lane, 2 lane, 3 lane processor cost ?
Hello, x86 has usually two operands/parameters like so: mov a, b Why not three ? Why not one ? Maybe it's because multiple lanes would make the processor more costly ? Does the opposite apply as well ? For example a processor could be designed with just one lane to memory which would work as follows... 20 May 2010 16:05
Brain teaser: Can RLE compression work for interleaving streams ? For example R,G,B streams ?!
Say the input stream is as follows: R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B Compression: RLE for R ? RLE for G ? RLE for B ? The mission is to output it again as follows: R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B, R,G,B Do you believe RLE compression is possible for interleaved streams ? ;) If you do be... 21 May 2010 08:23
No lock for bt instruction ?
Hello, The intel manual "The IA-32 Intel Architecture Software Developer's Manual, Volume 2A, Instruction Set Reference, A-M, Document Number 253666 rev 19.pdf" mentions LOCK prefix is available for the BTC, BTR, BTS instructions but it doesn't mention it for BT instruction ?!? Is this correct ? Is there... 19 May 2010 14:52
Big OOO, SpMT, and possible designs
