I always have a hard time making sense of these numbers. If I take the $22.43 moving average for December, multiply it by 3 and then subtract November actual of $21.83 and October actual of $22.05, I get a December actual of $23.61. But if I take the full year of $226.3 and subtract the actuals for January through November I get $25.45 for December actuals. Thats a pretty big difference. Hopefully the actual for December will be released shortly. I really don't like the moving average.

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.
