Agreed! If the author can't take the time to make his figures readable, then the body of the article is probably not worth reading. I wouldn't even take my time to see if the body of the article has anything useful. As far as I am concerned, this "article" is nothing more than a poorly written, full-page advertisement for the author's company.

Thank you for the article, but the (bad) quality of enclosed figures cannot go unnoticed. These days it seems that article writers settle with almost anything - small pictogram showing virtually nothing does the job for them... However, as a reader, I tend to look for clarity and readability. That significantly accelerates learning process. Since I'm not naive, I do not expect pictures with scale and arrows describing contents of a diagram - these days are gone forever. But I do expect at least picture in such a scale that can be read without a magnifying glass. If any publication doesn't meet that criterion, it goes into "marketing leaflet" section, in my book at least.

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.
