Mr. Barker of "Digital TV Designline's" comments regarding the mythical picture quality "superiority" of HD DVD over Blu-ray are unfortunate as they are quickly and easily disproved. Both formats used identical codecs, and in side-by-side comparisons on identical monitors, differences are only noticed between the two formats where engineers have intentionally undertaken to alter the master. In fact, thanks to Blu-ray's higher maximum bit-rate, picture quality is assuredly better on Blu-ray discs than on HD DVDs using the same codec from the same unaltered master. To claim otherwise is not only counterintuitive to the facts, but irresponsible posturing.

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.
