AMD and ATI Development Roadmap

AMD/ATI have already got to work on their development plans for 2008.
Specifically, it appears as though AMD and ATI are planning unified, scalable platforms using a mixture of AMD CPUs, ATI chipsets and ATI GPUs
This sort of multi-GPU, multi-CPU architecture is extremely reminiscent of AMD's Torrenza technology announced this past June, which allows low-latency communications between chipset, CPU and memory.

The idea behind Torrenza is to open the market for 3rd party chipset development. AMD said the technology is an open architecture, allowing "accelerators" to be added to the system to perform specific duties in the same way the new PPU chips do.
AMD President Dirk Meyer says "As we look towards ever finer manufacturing geometries we see the opportunity to integrate CPU and GPU cores together onto the same die to better serve the needs of some segments." During the AMD/ATI merger conference call, Meyer furthermore added that not too long ago, floating point processing was done on a separate piece of silicon. Meyer claimed that the trend for the FPU integration into the CPU may not be too different than the evolution of the GPU into the CPU

AMD recently filed its first graphics based patent a few weeks ago. The patent, "CPU and graphics unit with shared cache" would indicate that these concepts are more than just ideas.

Ok I'm super new at the whole RDC thing, I've never actually done it but once, and that was from my computer to someone elses computer.

What I am aiming to do is be able to connect to my computer from a work computer so that I can check my mail and such, check on my torrents, etc.

How do I set it up so that I could randomly connect to it throughout the day?

Thx :)

Well firstly what you want to determin mate is does your work have a firewall that blocks non standard ports?

If it does, there is a registry hack you can use to change the RDC port - otherwise there is a great bit of software you can get called RemotelyAnywhere that allows remote control of your pc via java/html.

That I'm not sure of.... I know that we get help from the helpcenter where they can take over our screens and fix stuff via a java applet.

I don't care which program I use as long as I can get the job done and it doesnt require the installation of additional software on the work compy.

In that case this: http://www.remotelyanywhere.com/ is your best solution.

All web based, and allows much more than just basic remote control as well :)


It will ask what port you want to run it on, enter 443, and open that port on your firewall. This way you won't have any problems if your company has a port blocking firewall.

Have u guys heard of the onion router [tor] ???

its a program that sends all traffic thru ports 80[http] and 433[https] (usually always open) it encrypts it and bounces it bout a few servers its for privacy but it also circumvents firewalls .. run it on the RDC client and Host Machines and the firewall wont b a prob :)

Jim, contact me about obtaining this software at a greatly reduced rate :)

I have a guide I could do on this as well as some free alternative software. Would you like me to do one for you Frag? I can do it tomorrow, as we are going out to the pics tonight, and we won't be back until later on. :)

That would be great PV... I got RemotelyAnywhere and it works great but I still think the guide would be good for anyone else interested in doing this.

Thanks mate.
