Advanced Micro Devices AMD chipsets

This was the “Open Platform Management Architecture” with ATI, VIA and SiS developing their own chipset for Athlon 64 processors and later Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 64 FX processors, including the Quad FX platform chipset from Nvidia.

Advanced Micro Devices AMD chipsets

The initiative went further with the release of Opteron server processors as AMD stopped the design of server chipsets in 2004 after releasing the AMD-8111 chipset, and again opened the server platform for firms to develop chipsets for Opteron processors. As of today, Nvidia and Broadcom are the sole designing firms of server chipsets for Opteron processors.

Advanced Micro Devices AMD chipsets

Although AMD states the firm will still produce Intel chipsets, Intel had not granted the license of 1333 MHz FSB to ATI.

Advanced Micro Devices AMD chipsets

Discrete graphics chipsets were launched on November 15, 2007 as part of the codenamed Spider desktop platform, and IGP chipsets were launched at a later time in Spring 2008 as part of the codenamed Cartwheel platform.

Advanced Micro Devices AMD chipsets

AMD returned to the server chipsets market with the AMD 800S series server chipsets. It includes support for up to six SATA 6.0 Gbit/s ports, the C6 power state, which is featured in Fusion processors and AHCI 1.2 with SATA FIS–based switching support. This is a chipset family supporting Phenom processors and Quad FX enthusiast platform (890FX), IGP(890GX).

Advanced Micro Devices Partnerships

AMD utilizes strategic industry partnerships to further its business interests as well as to tackle Intel’s dominance and resources.

Advanced Micro Devices Partnerships

A partnership between AMD and Alpha Processor Inc. developed HyperTransport, a point-to-point interconnect standard which was turned over to an industry standards body for finalization. It is now used in modern motherboards that are compatible with AMD processors.

Advanced Micro Devices Partnerships

AMD also formed a strategic partnership with IBM, under which AMD gained silicon on insulator (SOI) manufacturing technology, and detailed advice on 90 nm implementation. AMD announced that the partnership would extend to 2011 for 32 nm and 22 nm fabrication-related technologies.

Advanced Micro Devices Partnerships

To facilitate processor distribution and sales, AMD is loosely partnered with end-user companies, such as HP, Compaq, ASUS, Acer, and Dell.

Advanced Micro Devices Partnerships

In 1993, AMD established a 50-50 partnership with Fujitsu called FASL, and merged into a new company called FASL LLC in 2003

Advanced Micro Devices Partnerships

On May 18, 2006, Dell announced that it would roll out new servers based on AMD’s Opteron chips by year’s end, thus ending an exclusive relationship with Intel. In September 2006, Dell began offering AMD Athlon X2 chips in their desktop line-up.

The Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4 are both powered by a custom-built AMD APU, and the Nintendo Wii U is powered by an AMD GPU. According to AMD, having their processors in all three of these consoles will greatly assist developers with cross-platform development to competing consoles and PCs as well as increased support for their products across the board.

Economies of scale Crew size and other operating costs for ships, trains and airplanes

Operating crew size for ships, airplanes, trains, etc., does not increase in direct proportion to capacity. (Operating crew consists of pilots, co-pilots, navigators, etc. and does not include passenger service personnel.) Many aircraft models were significantly lengthened or “stretched” to increase payload.

Economies of scale Crew size and other operating costs for ships, trains and airplanes

Many manufacturing facilities, especially those making bulk materials like chemicals, refined petroleum products, cement and paper, have labor requirements that are not greatly influenced by changes in plant capacity. This is because labor requirements of automated processes tend to be based on the complexity of the operation rather than production, and many manufacturing facilities have nearly the same basic number of processing steps and pieces of equipment, regardless of production.

Sales The relationships between sales and marketing

Marketing and sales differ greatly, but have the same goal

Sales The relationships between sales and marketing

The relatively new field of sales process engineering views “sales” as the output of a larger system, not just as the output of one department

Sales The relationships between sales and marketing

Most large corporations structure their marketing departments in a similar fashion to sales departments and the managers of these teams must coordinate efforts in order to drive profits and business success. For example, an “inbound” focused campaign seeks to drive more customers “through the door”, giving the sales department a better chance of selling their product to the consumer. A good marketing program would address any potential downsides as well.

Sales The relationships between sales and marketing

The sales department would aim to improve the interaction between the customer and the sales facility or mechanism (example, web site) and/or salesperson

Sales The relationships between sales and marketing

One further common complication of marketing involves the inability to measure results for a great deal of marketing initiatives. In essence, many marketing and advertising executives often lose sight of the objective of sales/revenue/profit, as they focus on establishing a creative/innovative program, without concern for the top or bottom lines – a fundamental pitfall of marketing for marketing’s sake.

Sales The relationships between sales and marketing

Many companies find it challenging to get marketing and sales on the same page. The two departments, although different in nature, handle very similar concepts and have to work together for sales to be successful. Building a good relationship between the two that encourages communication can be the key to success – even in a down economy.

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

The genetic of the Hawaiian language is demonstrated primarily through the application of lexicostatistics,which involves quantitative comparison of lexical cognates, and the comparative method.

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

Lexicostatistics is a way of quantifying an approximate evaluation of the degree to which any given languages are genetically related to one another

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

The comparative method is a technique developed by linguists to determine if two or more languages are genetically related, and if they are, the historical nature of the relationships. For a given meaning, the words of the languages are compared. Linguists observe:

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

identical sounds,

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

dissimilar sounds, in corresponding positions in the words

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

In this method, the definition of “identical” is reasonably clear, but those of “similar” and “dissimilar” are based on phonological criteria which may require professional training to fully understand and which can vary in the contexts of different languages

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

In both methods, it is very important to exclude adopted words from the analysis, if they can be determined.

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

The following table, Decimal Numbers, provides a limited data set for ten meanings. The Proto-Austronesian (PAN) forms are from Li (2004:4). The asterisk (*) is used to show that these are hypothetical, reconstructed forms. The Tagalog forms are from Ramos (1971), the Tongan from Churchward (1959), and the Hawaiian from Pukui & Elbert (1986). In the table, the year date of the modern forms is rounded off to CE 2000 to emphasize the 6000-year time lapse since the PAN era.

Marquesan e tahi e ‘ua e to’u e fa e ‘ima e ono e fitu e va’u e iva ‘onohu’u

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

Note 1. For the number “10”, the Tongan form in the table is part of the word /ho?o-fulu/ (‘ten’). The Hawaiian form is part of the word /ana-hulu/ (‘ten days’), however the more common form used in counting and quantifying is /?umi/, a different root.

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

Application of the lexicostatistical method to the data in the table will show the four languages to be related to one another, with Tagalog having 100% cognacy with PAN, while Hawaiian and Tongan have 100% cognacy with each other, but 90% with Tagalog and PAN

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

Application of the comparative method will show partly different genetic relationships. It will point out sound changes, such as:

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

lowering of PAN *u to Tagalog [o] in word-final syllables;

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

retention of PAN *t in word-initial and word-medial position in Tagalog and Tongan, but shift to /k/ in Hawaiian;

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

retention of PAN *p in Tagalog, but shift to /f/ in Tongan and /h/ in Hawaiian.

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

This method will recognize sound change #1 as a shared innovation of Hawaiian and Tongan. It will also take the Hawaiian and Tongan cognates for “1” as another shared innovation. Due to these exclusively shared features, Hawaiian and Tongan are found to be more closely related to one another than either is to Tagalog or PAN.

Hawaiian language Methods of proving Hawaiian’s family relationships

The forms in the table show that the Austronesian vowels tend to be relatively stable, while the consonants are relatively volatile. It is also apparent that the Hawaiian words for “3”, “5” and “8” have remained essentially unchanged for 6000 years.

De facto De facto relationships not recognized outside of Australia

Due to the different source of Australian commonwealth power on de factos they can only be legally recognised whilst living within a state in Australia

De facto De facto relationships not recognized outside of Australia

If an Australian de facto couple moves out of a state, they do not take the state with them and the new federal law is tied to the territorial limits of a state. The legal status and rights and obligations of the de facto or unmarried couple would then be recognised by the countries laws of where they are ordinarily resident. See the section on Family Court of Australia for further explanation on jurisdiction on de facto relationships.

Chipset

A chipset is a set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manage the data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals. It is usually found in the motherboard of a computer. Chipsets are usually designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors. Because it controls communications between the processor and external devices, the chipset plays a crucial role in determining system performance.

Chipset

In computing, the term chipset is commonly used to refer to a set of specialized chips on a computer’s motherboard or an expansion card. In personal computers, the first chipset for the IBM PC AT was the NEAT chipset by Chips and Technologies for the Intel 80286 CPU.

Chipset

In home computers, game consoles and arcade game hardware of the 1980s and 1990s, the term chipset was used for the custom audio and graphics chips. Examples include the Commodore Amiga’s Original Chip Set or SEGA’s System 16 chipset.

Chipset

Based on Intel Pentium-class microprocessors, the term chipset often refers to a specific pair of chips on the motherboard: the northbridge and the southbridge. The northbridge links the CPU to very high-speed devices, especially RAM and graphics controllers, and the southbridge connects to lower-speed peripheral buses (such as PCI or ISA). In many modern chipsets, the southbridge contains some on-chip integrated peripherals, such as Ethernet, USB, and audio devices.

Chipset

The manufacturer of a chipset often is independent from the manufacturer of the motherboard. Current manufacturers of chipsets for x86 motherboards include AMD, Broadcom, Intel, NVIDIA, SiS and VIA Technologies. Apple computers and Unix workstations have traditionally used custom-designed chipsets. Some server manufacturers also develop custom chipsets for their products.

Chipset

In the 1980s, Chips and Technologies pioneered the manufacturing of chipsets for PC-compatible computers. Computer systems produced since then often share commonly used chipsets, even across widely disparate computing specialties. For example, the NCR 53C9x, a low-cost chipset implementing a SCSI interface to storage devices, could be found in Unix machines such as the MIPS Magnum, embedded devices, and personal computers.

Chipset Move toward processor integration in PCs

This made processor performance highly dependent on the system chipset – especially the northbridge’s memory performance and ability to shuttle this information back to the processor.

Chipset Move toward processor integration in PCs

As fewer functions are left un-handled by the processor itself, chipset venders have condensed the remaining north and southbridge functions into a single chip

Database model Relationships and functions

A given database management system may provide one or more of the five models. The optimal structure depends on the natural organization of the application’s data, and on the application’s requirements, which include transaction rate (speed), reliability, maintainability, scalability, and cost. Most database management systems are built around one particular data model, although it is possible for products to offer support for more than one model.

Database model Relationships and functions

Various physical data models can implement any given logical model. Most database software will offer the user some level of control in tuning the physical implementation, since the choices that are made have a significant effect on performance.

Database model Relationships and functions

A model is not just a way of structuring data: it also defines a set of operations that can be performed on the data. The relational model, for example, defines operations such as select (project) and join. Although these operations may not be explicit in a particular query language, they provide the foundation on which a query language is built.

Amiga Custom chipset

In addition, some models featured auxiliary custom chips which performed tasks such as SCSI control and display de-interlacing.

BIOS – Chips

Flash chips are programmed (and re-programmed) in-circuit, while EPROM chips need to be removed from the motherboard for re-programming

BIOS – Chips

Beginning with the IBM AT, PCs supported a hardware clock settable through BIOS. It had a century bit which allowed for manually changing the century when the year 2000 happened. Most BIOS revisions created in 1995 and nearly all BIOS revisions in 1997 supported the year 2000 by setting the century bit automatically when the clock rolled past midnight, December 31, 1999.

BIOS – Chips

The first flash chips were attached to the ISA bus. Starting in 1997, the BIOS flash moved to the LPC bus, a functional replacement for ISA, following a new standard implementation known as “firmware hub” (FWH). In 2006, the first systems supporting a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) appeared, and the BIOS flash memory moved again.

BIOS – Chips

The size of the BIOS, and the capacities of the ROM, EEPROM and other media it may be stored on, has increased over time as new features have been added to the code; BIOS versions now exist with sizes up to 16 megabytes

Three-dimensional integrated circuit – Notable 3D chips

The Teraflops Research Chip introduced in 2007 by Intel is an experimental 80-core design with stacked memory. Due to the high demand for memory bandwidth, a traditional I/O approach would consume 10 to 25 W. To improve upon that, Intel designers implemented a TSV-based memory bus. Each core is connected to one memory tile in the SRAM die with a link that provides 12 GB/s bandwidth, resulting in a total bandwidth of 1 TB/s while consuming only 2.2 W.

Three-dimensional integrated circuit – Notable 3D chips

The chip runs at a 1.4 GHz and it was designed for optimized vertical processing between the stacked chips which gives the 3D processor abilities that the traditional one layered chip could not reach

Sprint Corporation – Partnerships and more consolidation

In September 1996, Sprint announced a deal with RadioShack, and in 1997, Sprint stores opened at RadioShack to offer communications services and products across the United States. Since then, over 20 million Sprint cell phones have been sold via the RadioShack outlets. RadioShack was one of the first retailers to offer Sprint services and an all-digital nationwide network for its customers.

Sprint Corporation – Partnerships and more consolidation

On October 5, 1999, Sprint and MCI WorldCom announced a $129 billion merger agreement between the two companies. The deal would have been the largest corporate merger in history at the time.

Object-oriented programming – Real-world modeling and relationships

OOP can be used to associate real-world objects and processes with digital counterparts

Object-oriented programming – Real-world modeling and relationships

However, Niklaus Wirth (who popularized the adage now known as Wirth’s law: “Software is getting slower more rapidly than hardware becomes faster”) said of OOP in his paper, “Good Ideas through the Looking Glass”, “This paradigm closely reflects the structure of systems ‘in the real world’, and it is therefore well suited to model complex systems with complex behaviours” (contrast KISS principle).

Object-oriented programming – Real-world modeling and relationships

Steve Yegge and others noted that natural languages lack the OOP approach of strictly prioritizing things (objects/nouns) before actions (methods/verbs). This problem may cause OOP to suffer more convoluted solutions than procedural programming.

Circle-ellipse problem – Drop all inheritance relationships

The disadvantage is that one can no longer use circles where ellipses are expected.

Circle-ellipse problem – Drop all inheritance relationships

However, an acceptable workaround may be to add a method Circle.toEllipse() which would instantiate and return a mutable ellipse object using the circle’s current state. The caveat is that mutations performed on this new ellipse would not affect the original circle, and vice versa.

Circle-ellipse problem – Drop all inheritance relationships

Alternatively, one may provide a method Circle.asEllipse, which returns a mutable Ellipse “view” of the Circle object: an Ellipse instance initialized with the circle’s current state, that “redirects” all messages to the Circle object it was obtained from

Airship – Britain’s Burney Scheme and decline in airships

Because of the bad publicity surrounding the crash, the Air Ministry grounded the competing R100 in 1930 and sold it for scrap in 1931, ending the era of British rigid airships.

Airship – Britain’s Burney Scheme and decline in airships

The Empire State Building was completed in 1931 with a dirigible mast, in anticipation of passenger airship service. Various entrepreneurs experimented with commuting and shipping freight via airship.

Airship – Britain’s Burney Scheme and decline in airships

The Hindenburg disaster shattered public confidence in airships, and brought a definitive end to the “golden age”

Airship – Britain’s Burney Scheme and decline in airships

Hindenburg’s sister ship, the Graf Zeppelin II (LZ 130), could not perform commercial passenger flights without helium, which the United States refused to sell. The Graf Zeppelin flew some test flights and conducted electronic espionage until 1939 when it was grounded due to the start of the war. The last two Zeppelins were scrapped in 1940.

Airship – Britain’s Burney Scheme and decline in airships

While this was a severe blow towards the Soviet airship program, they continued to operate nonrigid airships until 1950.

Airship – Thermal airships and remotes

These combine the structures of both hot-air balloons and small airships

Airship – Thermal airships and remotes

Hot-air airships typically cost less to buy and maintain than modern helium-based blimps, and can be quickly deflated after flights. This makes them easy to carry in trailers or trucks and inexpensive to store. They are usually very slow moving, with a typical top speed of 25–30 km/h (15–20 mph, 6.7–8.9 m/s). They are mainly used for advertising, but at least one has been used in rainforests for wildlife observation, as they can be easily transported to remote areas.

Airship – Thermal airships and remotes

AC 91-57 only applies to modelers, and thus specifically excludes its use by persons or companies for business purposes.” The same docket item identifies 14CFR121 as the appropriate certification basis for experimental unmanned aircraft, which would included unmanned airships operating for commercial purposes, so commercial use of an unmanned airship is not prohibited – instead it must be certified under part 121 not 91.

Reporters Without Borders – Overemphasis on “third-world dictatorships”, bias in favor of Europe and the U.S.

In 2007 John Rosenthal argued that RWB showed a bias in favor of European countries. In the 2009 article about RWB and Venezuela cited above, Salim Lamrani stated that “RSF is not an organization that defends freedom of the press, but is an obscure entity with a political agenda precisely commissioned to discredit through all possible means the progressive governments in the world that find themselves on the United States’ blacklist.”

Taxonomy (general) – Is-a and Has-a relationships

Two of the predominant types of relationships in knowledge-representation systems are predication and the universally quantified conditional. Predication relationships express the notion that an individual entity is an example of a certain type (for example, John is a bachelor), while universally quantified conditionals express the notion that a type is a subtype of another type (for example, A dog is a mammal, which means the same as All dogs are mammals).

George Orwell – Relationships

Buddicom and Blair lost touch shortly after he went to Burma, and she became unsympathetic towards him. She wrote that it was because of the letters he wrote complaining about his life, but an addendum to Eric & Us by Venables reveals that he may have lost sympathy through an incident which was at best a clumsy seduction.

George Orwell – Relationships

Mabel Fierz, who later became Blair’s confidante, said: “He used to say the one thing he wished in this world was that he’d been attractive to women. He liked women and had many girlfriends I think in Burma. He had a girl in Southwold and another girl in London. He was rather a womaniser, yet he was afraid he wasn’t attractive.”

George Orwell – Relationships

Brenda Salkield (Southwold) preferred friendship to any deeper relationship and maintained a correspondence with Blair for many years, particularly as a sounding board for his ideas. She wrote: “He was a great letter writer. Endless letters, and I mean when he wrote you a letter he wrote pages.” His correspondence with Eleanor Jacques (London) was more prosaic, dwelling on a closer relationship and referring to past rendezvous or planning future ones in London and Burnham Beeches.

George Orwell – Relationships

Financial audit – Commercial relationships versus objectivity

One of the major issues faced by private auditing firms is the need to provide independent auditing services while maintaining a business relationship with the audited company.

Financial audit – Commercial relationships versus objectivity

The auditing firm’s responsibility to check and confirm the reliability of financial statements may be limited by pressure from the audited company, who pays the auditing firm for the service. The auditing firm’s need to maintain a viable business through auditing revenue may be weighed against its duty to examine and verify the accuracy, relevancy, and completeness of the company’s financial statements.

Financial audit – Commercial relationships versus objectivity

Numerous proposals are made to revise the current system to provide better economic incentives to auditors to perform the auditing function without having their commercial interests compromised by client relationships. Examples are more direct incentive compensation awards and financial statement insurance approaches. See, respectively, Incentive Systems to Promote Capital Market Gatekeeper Effectiveness and Financial Statement Insurance.

P (complexity) – Relationships to other classes

A generalization of P is NP, which is the class of decision problems decidable by a non-deterministic Turing machine that runs in polynomial time

P (complexity) – Relationships to other classes

P is also known to be at least as large as L, the class of problems decidable in a logarithmic amount of memory space

P (complexity) – Relationships to other classes

P is strictly contained in EXPTIME. Consequently, all EXPTIME-hard problems lie outside P, and at least one of the containments to the right of P above is strict (in fact, it is widely believed that all three are strict).

P (complexity) – Relationships to other classes

The most difficult problems in P are P-complete problems.

P (complexity) – Relationships to other classes

Another generalization of P is P/poly, or Nonuniform Polynomial-Time

P (complexity) – Relationships to other classes

In 1999, Jin-Yi Cai and D. Sivakumar, building on work by Mitsunori Ogihara, showed that if there exists a sparse language that is P-complete, then L = P.

Eve Online – Ships

Each of the four races has their own unique ship design preferences and varied strengths and weaknesses, although all races have ships that are meant for the same basic roles and are balanced for play against each other

Eve Online – Ships

Thus, players are encouraged to use starships that meet their preferred style of play, and the game does not place incentives for playing as one race over another.

Eve Online – Ships

Extra-large (or capital-class) starships include carriers (mobile bases that can launch fighters and are adept at repairing other ships), dreadnoughts (dedicated siege ships for attacking structures and other capitals), supercarriers (larger versions of carriers focused more on damage to capital class ships) and titans (supermassive mobile battle stations, capable of equipping doomsday devices which do massive amounts of damage to other capital ships).

Interpersonal communication – Dyadic communication and Relationships

The partners of the marriage will still have things to discuss, but as their relationship and communication grows, they can decide when to not speak about an issue, because in complex relationships like marriage, anything can become an issue.

Interpersonal communication – Dyadic communication and Relationships

Sillars (1380) and Roloff (1876) expressed that conflict resolution strategies can be categorized as pro-social or anti-social in nature. When an individual is presented with an interpersonal conflict, they can decide how they want to deal with it. They can avoid (anti-social), compete (anti-social), or cooperate (pro-social). It has been learned that one who avoids conflict is less capable of solving problems because they are more constricted. Avoidance has negative effects on dyads.
