Although [Ivan] has recorded videos of lectures given on the topic, we wanted to have a conversation aimed at the average engineer. What resulted is a discussion about the Mill CPU which can be understood by most, rather than just the few who have actually been involved in semiconductor design. The fun part is that Ivan details the business side of things as well as the technical.
This installment is Part 2 of 4. In this installment [Matt] and [Ivan] talk about the economies Mill brings to processing when compared to x86, PowerPc, ARM, etc. This leads to a discussion on how the memory interface has been adapted to cope with Mill's design. This part concludes by touching on some business topics, like the costs involved in developing semiconductors, and the models (Walmart and Crowd Funding) may play a role in making the project a future success story.
