When will we have CPUs that are 10x as fast as the current ones?view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – Hi, I just wonder how long you think it'll take until we will have CPUs that are 10x as fast as the current ones? For there to be any major disruptive computational difference, something like that is what it'll take. Assuming current progress of ~5% per year, we'll get there in x years, where 1.05^x = 10. That would mean around 47 years (1.05^47 = 9.9). (Hardware)

Used Intel SSD or NEW OCZ SSDview story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I'm about to purchase an SSD listed on craigslist today that is an Intel 520 240GB SSD for $60. I can buy this OCZ SSD here: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...veYXjTfs21QAGw For $70 after MIR. Intel should be more reliable than OCZ for SSDs but one is new and the other is used. Would an application like Speedfan be able to tell me how much data has been written to the SSD? (Hardware)
