Well it wasnt easy. It took a lot fo hard work and education to get within the grasps of it. I worked in the U.s. in a small testing lab, but I was re-located to Canada for reasons unknown to me. Its an even smaller lab here, but its closer to home, and I enjoy it more. As for getting in. I had to present myself really well. It was through word of mouth that I found out about these small labs accross North amercia that do smaller tests on Procs, and deal with consumer surveys. Right now its more of a work at home type deal. I get the proc, with a chosen MB and boop Im testing at home while I watch re-runs of Murder she wrote.


Ok its not all that dull. I wouldnt be able to keep my wife if thats all I did all day everyday ;)

Basically you need University, and a very very good knowledge of the theory of processors and computers alike. The scince. Althouhg Im extremly lazy these days, and dont check my spellling erorrs, I cant show slack to the boss. Or im on bathroom duty for a month :(

so for microprocessor design would you recommend an electronics course + a masters in advanced digital design, or go for the computer science route?

I would highly recommend Computer Science, and at that, youd need to get quite high marks to get into the big leagues. If you set your mind to it, its very possible.
University is almost always a must for MicroProc design and the higher the better.

Harris, how come my 3500+ Winchester Athlon 64 socket 939 overclocked is pacing slightly ahead of the FX-55 stock? is that normal? I am running at 2.70Ghz 10x 270

Im not sure exactly what your trying to say. Its possible that an OCed 64 can reach the performanxce of an FX55, however clarify what you mean by pace. You mean it reached a higher clock or its doing better....Im confused a bit.

Mine outperforms and walks circles around a FX-55 OC'ed like it is when the FX-55 is stock.

Did you say RANTS against AMD? Did I read right??? RANTS against AMD??? How could you possibly say that... It is very dangerous mate, specially with all these pen... lovers around.... last thing you know they got you right in the back... Hail to the king, baby! (Duke Nukem said this a looooooooong time ago, but now it belongs to AMD :D)...
