Golden Disks and IDE
The problem of recording "golden" discs has already been covered on our website (as well as in the journal CHIP, No. 8, 1999). However, the problems continue. Only, if earlier…

What to do?
Do not panic. Without delay, check all computers for compatibility with 2000. For this, there are programs, including freely distributed ones. You can get them online. In particular, the site…

Excellent coprocessor (FPU)

This time it turned out with a floating point. In time, apparently, they lured the team of Dirk Meyer, one of the creators of Alpha 21264. Now the floating point computation unit contains three separate blocks: addition (FADD), multiplication (FMUL) and storage (FSTORE) (see Fig. 1).

The addition and multiplication blocks are fully pipelined. The FPU architecture is such that it can take every clock input: one addition instruction and one multiplication instruction. Continue reading

Do not panic.

Without delay, check all computers for compatibility with 2000. For this, there are programs, including freely distributed ones. You can get them online. In particular, the site www.mitre.org provides links to a very large number of sites from which you can get programs for testing, including free ones, and even for software error correction. Of course, not all of these programs are equivalent. The best choice, most likely, is the YMARK2000 program. Continue reading

Are "stamped" discs really so perfect?
"Stamped" discs (or, if you want, "aluminum") can be made in various ways. The most common is, to be precise, injection molding, rather than stamping. Modern technologies make it possible…
