This is kinda cool

Bought a WRT54G V6 Wi-FI router this afternoon for $29. I planned to use it as a wireless bridge for my xbox 360. The built-in firmware does not support client bridge mode. What do you do?

Look here.

1. Download linux_prep_wrt54g.bin upgrade
2. Download linux_upgrade_wrt54g.bin upgrade
3. Download dd-wrt.v23_micro_generic.bin
4. Open the TFTP client (Enter IP: 192.168.1.245 or 192.168.1.1) and upload "dd-wrt.v23.micro_generic.bin"

Then I got this super cool linux based firmware running. (You can even telnet into it).

Afterwards, I setup the thing in client bridge mode, then took the router to the xbox 360....

The only thing I complain is that the Xbox 360 is not running AMD64 tri-core technology.

FYI, the Xbox 360 is an impressive piece of hardware powered by AMD technology -- the graphics is really good. But the CPU needs some boost -- Phenom X3 is the solution -- Microsoft is just retarded not to use AMD64 but choose a PowerPC derivative. Bill Gates has no imagination, he saw Sony doing IBM, and he just follows suit, no brainer and no brain.

BTW, Vista crashes in BSOD quite often.

That tricore would be way too hot and expensive for Xbox. Also accessing GDDR3 memory through GPU would suck even more than on P4 that has to go through northbridge. Another thing is that R500 can't directly read data from X3 caches as it can with Xenon

I should amend to say tricore-AMD in an xbox, given that the thing is already a triple-core

Nice, now you are suggesting that MS should have delayed its console by at least two years in order to use X3 CPU.

Xbox360: shipping in volume since November 22, 2005

AMD Phenom X3: shipping in volume... some time in 2008... maybe... if AMD doesn't go out of business first.

Yeah, it's hard to see why Bill Gates didn't go for the X3. I can't imagine what they were thinking.

If vista crashes to BSOD quite often its probably your shitty AMD drivers.

I'm running on a C2D with Nvidia and have yet to have Vista x64 crash once.

The problem is Sharikou is too stupid to use a computer.

Ohhh - now he's going to attack Microsot too! Cool! More for him to get heckled and ridiculed about....

Vista Systems:

Intel Centrino Duo T7300 Intel Graphics - Aero Runs fine, No BSOD's since install Vista x64

Intel P4D 3.2Ghz Intel Graphics, Aero runs fine, No BSOD's since install Vista x64.

Intel C2D E6600 Geforce 7600GT Aero runs fine, NO BSOD's since install Vista x64

Intel Pentium 4 2.4Ghz - ATI X1550 AGP- Vista 32 BSOD's on last three versions of Catalyst drivers - swapped out for Geforce 8400, Vista 32 stable since (3 weeks ago)

Intel Celeron 420, Intel Graphics - Aero runs fine, Vista 32 no BSOD's

MS will never use AMD. Microsoft likes to sell products. AMD can't deliver.

Intel will be the choice soon, just like they now are for MACs. Intel can always keep up with demand and appear to have brilliant yields. Plus i bet they are a damn sight cheaper than stripped down out of date power pc cpus.

Could be because ONE out of the THREE cores the Xbox has - so only one third of the whole processor - is already 3 times faster than a whole Taliban processor?

No. At best each core is comparable to ~2.5GHz P4

Actually Microsoft did use AMD for quite a while with the release of Windows Server 2003 x64. Most of Microsoft's back ends for servers were either HP ProLiant DL385s or 585's.

This as of 8 months ago was changing quickly back to DL380's and 580's, due to Intel's higher performance CPU's, and overall reduced TCO for the Intel platform versus AMD.

At the current time, Microsoft's data centers are about 80% Intel. But that number is increasing, especially with the advent of the new BL480c quad core blades.

AMD CEO Hector Ruiz named 2007 UA Technology Executive of the Year

HECTOR has been named the Technology Executive of the Year by the University of Arizona.

The folks in Scottsdale reckon that Ruiz deserves the nod because he has been a "leader and visionary" when it comes to "the intersection of technology and business". He was given the honor at a luncheon over the weekend.

It is Ruiz, not Otellini, that the University is honouring.

Apparently making the best cpu designs in the world is great leadership.
Many at DAAMIT may agree since intel(copytel) is totally knocking off AMDs product designs to produce nehalem which makes all of intels present line up obsolete relics.

AMD has the only state of the art, relevant cpu designs and intel plans to copy them to save there ailing company.

Barcelona totally annihilates xeons c2d/pentium 3 relic designs and its intel who has confirmed this since they are abandoning all of there cpu designs to copy the AMD hypertransport systems.

Barcelona stands alone as the only future proof quad core design for sale at this time.

BUY AMD hi performance, energy saving, low cost, most often copied, cpus, platforms, and video solutions.

Dont buy a knock off, buy the original and still the best AMD BARCELONA.

Intel shows off quad core mobile CPUs:

What does AMD have? Their 'next generation' parts are still K8 based. Pathetic. They won't even fast enough to take on the current Core 2 Duos.

Intel shows off 32nm wafers:

http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3622&Itemid=51

Remember, 45nm CPUs are out from Intel using the revolutionary high-k metal gate in less than one month. What does AMD have? More power point presentations!

This week we will Intel report another profit well in excess of $1bn, and AMD post a several hundred million dollar loss.

AMD BK by Q2'08.

AMD can't even compete with Intel's existing 65nm products yet Intel will release 45nm CPUs in less than one month.

Expect Intel to report another profit well in excess of $1bn today.

AMD is finished. BK by Q2'08.

Nice try giant, but you missed again! Try not to be so excited next time, because some of your actions could easily become reactions... Regarding AMD's BK: I think you need to reconsider your comments vis-a-vis AMD BK "premonition". Lay down awhile and drink your soda and maybe some books could help you to relax and enjoy your life...

This is just getting hilarious:

http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2007/10/16/idf-taipei-nehalem-real-big

AMD hasn't even caught up with Clovertown or Kentsfield yet and Intel has Yorkfield and Harpertown coming out next month. These CPUs will scale up-to speeds of ~4GHz.

But the real killer is Nehalem.

These - obviously - are fast parts and, with a few more steppings coming along over the next six months, Intel got that frequency headroom to something like 4GHz under normal operating conditions, something confirmed to us this morning by a very large Taiwan OEM.

So, how much will the Nehalem be faster than the already oh-so-fast Penryn, focusing specifically on the core IPC single thread performance? I asked Kirk Skaugen, Intel's Digital Enterprise Group VP and GM of Server Platforms Group.

Kirk is always friendly, even to the point of having had a fun chat during the previous Taipei IDF on how great it would have been if Nvidia actually did come out with a dual socket Xeon Nforce SLI chipset - which it didn't up to now - so I expected a fun answer this time too.

Well, no fun here - he didn't want to comment on the CPU core-specific performance expectations beyond the well known integrated memory controllers and interconnects. But he did say that the CPU core performance jump from the same process Core 2 (Penryn) to Nehalem would be higher than the jump for Netburst to Core 2 itself.

Since that last jump was pretty substantial - big enough to turn around the market situation and put AMD in a lot of further trouble, I'm curious how far would Nehalem go then.


This will be insane. Penryn -> Nehalem will be a bigger leap than Netburst -> Conroe!

I previously thought that Intel would not make significant changes to the core outside of SMT support - I was very wrong!

It goes without saying that AMD is royally screwed now.

Surprise, surprise, AMD BARCELONAS deliver a real performance jump I guess thats why intel is copying them.


Is that how Clovertown is still faster Barcelona in almost all categories?

http://www.techreport.com/articles.x/13176

Barcelona is fragged to pieces by Clovertown.

You see oneexpert, unlike AMD Intel realises that in order to be successful your 'new' products have to be faster than the competitions existing products!!

Yeah. In stuff that isn't multi-threaded K8 will slaughter K10 because of it's low clockspeeds. K10 only wins in multi-threaded applications because it has four cores.

It's pretty sad that until next year AMD's fastest CPU for people that play games and don't make full use of a quad core CPU will be a 90nm K8 6400+!

Just for the fun, used 5 minutes digging out the host comments during the pre ATI merger era looking of nvidia comment ... since those AMD fans moan about NVIDIA here and there ...

...
Just like what Nvidia's SLI did to ATI, AMD 4x4 will force Intel to react. A 4x4 sticker is just like a SLI sticker: it devalues the competition.


isn't that fun? and i dun bother to dig further, be it comments from the host or from those fans ... :)
