Honestly, dual core processors aren't that great; at least mine isn't. I'd prefer a quad core, which I plan to get.

why cant you just make the cpu chip bigger
Brod Wilkinson (1 year ago)
+Ashoi F What are you talking about? most consumers would never change their cpu. Socket pin outs change quite regularly too. If they could make a cpu twice the size and get twice the performance they would.
space man (1 year ago)
Ashoi F (1 year ago)
space man Chips need to get faster every year, they also need to fit into most consumer grade sockets that are a standard size If they changed the size of the chip every year, then older sockets (which are usually attached to something important like the motherboard) would also need to be replaced every year. There would be no backwards compatibility. Imagine if the ports on your laptop needed to be replaced every year to use newer peripherals

to fit more stuff on it

Reading the replies below about your videos being too short: You should experiment with the "Brief" like a headline (this video for instance) paired up with an exhaustive 10-15 minute full story as the main article with all of the gooey stuff in it - the stuff techies love! I am a new subscriber - your information is great - just too little of it!

Outro music please
Eiad Alkhayat (2 years ago)
i think in the future people will not buy computers , only subscribe to a computer services through super fast internet , allowing them to transform there potatoes to super pc , and finally we can download some more ram XD

hey Austin maybe you can get a tour of how diwave works that will be awesome
Rianne Hgedoorn (2 years ago)
but whe have computers they size of a creditcard the rasberry pi
Shiva Rampersaud (1 year ago)
lol, but it's currently being run on an ARM based processor, not the more powerful Intel ATOM processors. They are good to tinker with, but no one's gonna play Watch Dogs on it

quantum computers can be 0 AND 1
Shiva Rampersaud (1 year ago)
I quit agar Yeah, they can. They're called "Qubits" unlike the binary "bit" that PC's use nowadays.

So... If we can't keep getting smaller due to limitations, why not go bigger so we can put more cores and transistors on a CPU? Obviously we would have to create new form factors, but the pros would FAR outweigh the cons.
The Joker (2 years ago)
+ishmari14 You're welcome. But you have a good concept. Sadly some of the cons would not allow these CPUs to be useable.
Salty Boi (2 years ago)
+The Joker Thanks for the reply.
The Joker (2 years ago)
If CPUs get bigger and have more cores and transistors then they will be way expensive that no one can afford one and then they will need a large amount of power that most people can't afford.

I dont think that you will ever see quantum computers shrunken down to the size that normal computers are today. I could easily be wrong, but youd need some unimaginable breakthroughs in order to reach that point.
fatso1423 (1 year ago)
people thought the same with household computers...
Ben Kelly (2 years ago)
+Cole Park Well.. Looking at the ENIAC from 1948, it weighed 40 tons, and took up 1800 square feet. It could perform 5,000 additions. Today, most computers run at 3 ghz. which means 3,000,000,000Hz, or 3 billion operations per second. But that's just 1 core. CPUs today can range from 2 cores to 8 cores in personal computers. In some Super computers there are 72 cores. At this rate, it's hard to believe what we could be seeing in computers within 20 years from now, hell, even 10 years from now.

SIME (2 years ago)
You think Quantum computers will be more powerful than the human brain ? I dont think that way ... Currently we can build a computer that could do things in 5hours that we can do in 10sec max .. Like seeing someone that changed much and remembering and then knowing who it is ... So they have a really long way to go
Shiva Rampersaud (1 year ago)
Dude, I haven't seen someone play Tomb Raider in their heads....
The Joker (2 years ago)
We built computers that can do things in less time then we can already like multiple scientific equations done in a matter of minutes of seconds while the human brain can take hours or days to solve a single one.

A computer doesn't and will not think the way a human does. We don't follow logical algorithms, we have intuition and creativity such things cannot be programmed, you can create a learning algorithm in which a computer based on prior knowledge can solve problems in system of "trial and error" but it will do so without any emotional attachment. The only way you can obtain "human-like" thinking computer is if you give it a biological body!

Human brain had a good run eh..? What exactly is creating these new processors. Not other processors, but human brains. The brain is limitless, but due to the nervous system only moving so quick, we are limited.

Smartphone cant be fastest computer at the world at all.. Beacuse PC is bigger. And more space mean more CPUS and MORE data and MORE SPEED!
Swayam shree (2 years ago)
Quantum computers do not do all calculations faster than present day computers. They are just able to compute certain algorithms faster.
loominus (2 years ago)
+Swayam shree To be able to computer algorithms faster you need to do calculations fast aswell,I'd suggest doing your research mate.
