This is all greek to me... interesting as it may be.
Well I understand some of it. I am guesing according to the article the smaller the silicon gets every year or so the more it can be effected by our atmosphere. Switching transisters from off to on or on to off creating errors, this chip in a sense will attempt to detect such errors and provide a form of Error correction/checking.
I wonder if this means companys may have already been on the verge or reaching the point of deminishing returns? Usually companys only design stuff like this when it's already an issue.
When these become mainstream it will be fun to watch peoples expression when you tell them yeh my computer has a cosmic ray detector, its pretty leet.
i thought some bios had something like soft error detection or something in them to prevent this
You mean covering it with tin foil isn't going to stop the cosmic rays from interfering with my comuting experience. Darn wasted a box of foil.
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
always worked for me
