Well on of my first jobs post RAF was with flight simulators that were moving analog to digital. We had this odd idea that we could run all the accounting needs with the spare time left when the computer was not busy. What a joke, it was hard enough getting the simulation right.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
