2 TU-Delft TI1400/12-PDS 2 The Peak Performance Issue Source:

3 TU-Delft TI1400/12-PDS 33 The Performance Gap Processor-Memory Processor: CPU Speeds 2X every 2 years ~Moore’s Law; limit ~2010 Memory: DRAM Speeds 2X every 7 years Gap: 2X every 2 years Gap Still Growing?

4 TU-Delft TI1400/12-PDS 4 The “Data Deluge”: Facts and Predictions "Everywhere you look, the quantity of information in the world is soaring. According to one estimate, mankind created 150 exabytes (billion gigabytes) of data in 2005. This year, it will create 1,200 exabytes. Merely keeping up with this flood, and storing the bits that might be useful, is difficult enough. Analysing it, to spot patterns and extract useful information, is harder still.“ The Data Deluge, The Economist, 25 February 2010.

12 TU-Delft TI1400/12-PDS Laboratory (+Bonus Exercises) Goal: practical experience with assembly (mandatory) Goal: lots of work, lots of fun … +500 to 1,500 points Bonus topics High-performance data privacy … in assembly An interactive game … in assembly Access to bonus Complete the 5 mandatory exercises in the first 2 sessions Activity points at course and/or tutorial Self-study assignment complete 12 More SAs More hours

13 Final Exam: July 2(?), 2012 Mandatory, access only with Lab complete 30 multiple-choice questions, up to 9,000 points First 10 multiple-choice questions match mid-term exam Automatic use of best score for first 10 questions from mid-term and final exams (You can only win!) Questions change between mid-term and final exam (Unlike last year!)

14 Final Exam 2012 [1/6] Po-ta-to, Po-tah-to Q: What happens to terms in Dutch? After all, you did lecture in English?! A: Goede vraag! Most terms are in English anyway Every question includes both Dutch and English version The Dutch version has been checked by a native Dutch speaker

15 Final Exam 2012 [2/6] Our Kind of Questions Q: What kind of questions will you ask? A: In principle, any kind of questions. However, think about all those end-lecture tests: Four choices, answer not obvious (unless you learned the tricks) Excercises that look like much work aren’t (learn the tricks) Q: How difficult? A: Enough to test your skills. Hopefully enough to separate. Difficult for the easy stuff, mid-level for difficult stuff Think mid-term exam!
