The huge spread in scores is interesting ... but not very informative until we have a better understanding of the benchmark. Is this score proportional to something that consumers experience or is it a measurement that is drowned out by the overlaid software? My first computer in 1979 ran at 1 MHz and my current one runs at 2 GHz. Is it 2,000 times faster? No, actually the user interface is much slower.

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.
