Does anyone need that ‘telephone number’ of a specification? I do not read through hardware reviews generally as I have a new, very good spec. computer and, not being ‘geeky’ are more than pleased with what I have got – but in the latest mag the Foxconn GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card review caught my eye ,for no particular reason and that is where the stats come from. Admittedly, I do not use the computer for anything ‘really exciting’ but it does excel for what I do use it for.
No doubt I shall get put in my place by the high-tech experts out there but, for heaven’s sake, 681,000,000 transistors, huh!
I wonder if that includes the duds. I think of the drawing office junior standing at a large drawing board with the chip layout on marking all the transistors with a felt-tip pen, tally counter in hand! but somehow I don't think so.
All this technical stuff at this time of the morning is making, what passes for my brain, hurt! but thanks for the explanations. I think I shall have a nice cup of tea now, this doesn't require any thinking and it brings more contentment then the answers ;oO
