Hello Rick small comment from Europe. We own two cars, both diesels. The smallest is a VW Polo (with airco etc) and it does here in dense traffic in the netherlands if I drive quietly roughly 28 km per liter. The large car is a VW Transporter series 5 Van loaded with all holiday stuff two adults and 2 children. I tanked last saterday near the Italian border in Austria, and drove all the way (>950 km) without tanking to our home. No way you can do this with petrol can you. Regards, Henk Mol, Sleeuwijk, the Netherlands.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. 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.
