Power consumption. Designing CPU's for x86 instead of a RISC architecture necessitates higher complexity, and thus, power consumption.

Simple few million transistor RISC design is good for applications of less than a watt.

Did you unironically expect Linus not to blindly defend x86?

It was his study subject during his Master's!

He worked half his career designing x86 chips!

He's still just a (rather untalented) programmer though. As usual, he focuses his defense on speed and clever kludges - which is nice, but he completely overlooks other factors.

Factor number 1 in my opinion: security. x86 has no proper page protection.

But fuck it, who cares about my expert opinion? I'm not famous, right.

Please tell the class that you're sorry, or provide an explanation as to why X86 is not risc.

>> No.58769307

The context is ambiguous here, neither of you are wrong

x86 is a CISC architecture - and needs to be decoded as such - but for the discussion of power consumption, the Execute core architecture is more significant than Decode. Ultimately, it probably depends on what size chip we're talking (Xeon vs Quark)

>> No.58769551

you have 45 minutes to explain in detail why x86 is an inherently bad instruction set other than 'it just is' and 'muh phone has lotsa battery life', taking into account the actual uses cases where x86 overwhelmingly dominates any and all RISC architectures and compatibility with existing software.

>> No.58769903

Holy fuck how many times do I have to explain this to you doubleniggers?
X86 is risc. It has been risc since Pentium pro.
Front end pretends to be X86 cisc, but past the decode it is all risc. It's not quite as efficient as a pure risc processor but it gets close enough.

He's got a shitload more points for it than you and about a decade of direct experience working with the architecture (at that point) behind his opinion. What do you have? A bunch of bullshit arguments rooted in trivial idealistic/aesthetic perspectives? Some talking points and ancient benchmarks from '90s workstation vendors that went under the second mainstream PCs became powerful enough to compete with their products?

RISC and CISC are dead, stop living in the past.

Reminder that the removal of leftpad, a npm package that's single purpose was to pad zeroes onto a number (7 =>0000007) crippled the entire node ecosystem.

It turned out that leftpad was up the chain somewhere in the dependencies of so many packages.

it's not about 'assembly' making programs faster.
