Bypassing the Silicon Speed Barrier
There is a fundamental physical barrier in the continuing improvement in computer speed. Silicon, the semiconductor material computer chips are made from, has a finite limit, a finite speed at which it can transmit electrical signals. This maxes out at around 100Ghz, at absolute best. Is there any way around it? Surprisingly, yes.



Not a platform or modelling software specific book, Modelling Digital Dinosaurs is Ken?s first book, and it takes you through the basics of creating 3D representations of something which has fascinated and captivated for centuries ? dinosaurs. The book does this in a patient, kind, step by step manner, demonstrating techniques which really aid the beginning to intermediate modeller. Contains a free copy of Amapi version 1.5 on the CD in case the reader does not have a 3D modeller.
