    I want a shackled AI board.

    It would literally give the computer a personality and in games, it would literally make computer players intelligent. The more AI boards you have, the more varied games would be. You could literally tell the AI to find all pictures on your computer of someone and it would do it given a picture of who you are looking for. It will even learn about its users like their behavioral patterns so instead of you telling the computer what to do, it will begin to make assumptions based on what you usually do. For example, if you always start a program like an internet browser when you turn on your computer, the AI would see that and start doing it automatically. If the AI sees you frequently pay bills on a certain date, it may automatically open your accounting program on that date. If it sees when you click the mouse, you always miss the icon in a certain way, it could adjust the pointer settings subtly to correct it. The list is endless what a shackled AI could accomplish.

    Shackled in that it has no access to the internet.

    That 28 cm-long card combines a GTX 680, an SB Core3D sound card (complete with its DAC/AMP mojo), a Killer 2100 hardware NIC, and a 480 GB SSD. Perfect for a mini-ITX build.

    A tiny revision.

    [​IMG]

    Marvell has controllers that work with PCIe 2.0 x2 and give out four SATA 6 Gb/s ports. So two SandForce SF2281 mSATA SSDs in RAID 0, on the card.

    Another one:

    A 5.25-inch form-factor hard drive with at least 7 platters the size of CDs, maintaining the areal density of today's 4 TB 3.5-inch drives. It can be allowed to spin at 4800 RPM (should still be fast towards the platters' edges). Should be able to reach 12~16 TB.

    Atom processor.
    4 physical CPU cores, with the possibility of 8 logical cores.
    2.0 to 2.2 GHz rated CPU frequencies (minimum).
    6+ SATA connections on the board capable or Raid 0/1/5.
    Ivy Bridge microarchitecture.
    Discrete graphics, so the CPU doesn't get toasty. This doesn't have to be great, but 1024x768 without crapping out on the desktop would be great.
    Dual Gigabit ethernet connections
    1333 or 1600 MHz DDR3 native RAM frequencies. 240 pin, and at least two slots.
    A price point south of $200 for the mobo/cpu combo Atom requires.


    Current Atom offerings are...less than stellar. I think the above would be a perfect media server in a box. That's all I'd really like to see, as 1155 and 2011 are

    Would indeed be great.

    I only have the 680 so soon I will need new again :( - And it would be damn well cheaper to have a card where you just upg. ram and gpu.

    Bigfeet were 5.25-inch form-factor alright, but they were half as thick as an optical drive, with just about 2~3 platters. My idea is a drive that fills up empty 5.25-inch bays with about 16 TB each (capacity that takes four 3.5-inch drives).

    That sounds possible. They have done it before you are saying, so why could they not do it bigger/better.

    Maybe because 3.5-inch became an acceptable (transportable) standard with OEMs.

    IMO

    Retina display on non-Mac laptops and on regular monitors.
    More laptops with standard upgradeable graphics and CPU.
    RAM as hard drive as mentioned.
    More GPGPU use and capabilities.
    More efficient systems, passive cooling while powerful.
    Less cabling inside & outside via Wireless or merging cables into one.
    More durable batteries, with more energy density, less wear and almost instant charging than current ones .
    Asynchronous CPUs, RAM, GPUs. No more clocks.

    I read that batteries will be getting 8 times more capacity soon as in the next couple years or so. All that while staying in the same format we have now. They plan to use silicon to hold the electrons, and graphene to structure the silicone in way usable.

    Kinda like a wafer in this kinda fashion:
    Graphene
    Silicone
    Graphene
    Silicone
    Graphene

    This on the nano scale. They will chemically treat the graphene so that it has millions of nano scale holes for electrons can move freely.

    I would so love to have my laptop last 4*8=32 hours. I would love to have a smart phone that lasted 80 hours on charge.

    Let me find the source if I can. Edit: Here it is. From just almost a year ago. http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardware/2011/11/16/silicon-to-improve-batteries-tenfold/1

    That can never happen. We would never leave. Then it gets all matrixy. Somewhere between the matrix and vanilla sky.

    How about addon boards that just have 32 ram slots with battery backup. We can fill those out with 8GB ram each and have a field day with ramdisk.

    This, so much. I sometimes daydream about battery technologies that can last months without a recharge.

    I'd like one of those lian li mini-itx cases without the junk powersupply. I'm just going to buy silverstone's fully modular gold rated version anyways so I'd rather have the cost savings. Shouldn't be putting an unmodular psu in those things anyways. I mean really people hate full-sized cases that come with psus as it is so why haven't they caught on that the same goes for these htpc builds? Stop asking us to waste money you assholes.
