    Now if they would just hurry up and make SATA 5, PCI-E 4.0 X64 with a 1000 core CPU - we may be able to make some terminators , a T1000 ?? Hopefully not made by Lenovo :P

    It'd be indestructible! We best hope that Skynet achieves sentience in an Acer factory so we have a chance to fight back (or hide out for a couple of months until they all break of their own accord).

    It'd be slightly less dramatic if the war with Skynet was not won with the leadership of John Connor; but simply because some hinges broke, an important plastic blanking plate was not secured with threadlock, and the Atheros wifi was bricked by a dodgy firmware update.

    And trying to claim on warranty would take an absolute age by which point you could of destroyed them repeatedly before they get repaired

    We're kind of almost there already.

    • SATA 4 or 5 = 12Gb/s SAS
    • PCIe 4.0 (x64) = 128GB/s (I think the Dell PowerEdge R920 has 10 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots which add upto 160GB/s)
    • 1,000 Core CPU = 32 x Intel Xeon E7-8890 v2 (960 Cores) or 1 x nVidia GeForce Titan Black (2,880 Cores)

    No can do. He might have some luck with a T800, but the T1000 uses a lot a nanotech. In fact all it's processing is done at the cellular level. No wonder the damn things are so hard to kill!

    I would build a T-1 to start with because it looks like you might be able to fit a 1U rackmount server on the back of it.

    You could use a BOINC project to do it. I have a thread running on BOINC

    Presume its similar process to how they make aircraft grade aluminum but using stainless steel or a stronger metal that is maybe carbonized etc ?

    For the T-4 - presume you will use a raspberry pi lol
