Hi:

Below is an example of "parallel Hz"

I am describing an extreme version of parallel Hz below. I am not sure
if it is even possible.

If each clock signal is 1 Hz, and you have a billion of them, staggered
such that every 1ns part of the CPU can start, and finish, an
instruction - making the effective 'clock rate' 1 GHz.

In a "parallel Hz" device the bits maybe completely in serial and the
algorithms and tasks maybe totally non-parallelizable. However, the
frequency is still parallel.

The device I am imagining is completely serial except for the clock
rate. It is completely serial except for the frequency. It uses
"parallel Hz" but in terms of everything other than frequency, it is
totally serial and non-parallel. Only the clock rate is parallel.

Parallel Hz = a method using N number of 1 Hz clock signals to gain a
clock rate of N Hz.

My imaginary design has a clock rate of 4 GHz that is obtained by using
4 billion 1 Hz clock signals. But otherwise, it is completely serial.

4 billions 1 Hz lines to make a 4 GHz signal.

There is a significant difference between "parallel Hz" and "parallel bits".

A parallel printer is an example of a device that uses "parallel bits".
This has nothing to do with "parallel Hz".

Is parallel Hz possible?

Thanks,

Green

Dude, you need to get laid!!

Hey there Green Xenon,

Perhapse you'd be better looking into a dual socket mobo using 2 x quad core
cpu's such as Intel's Server Board S5000PSL and use pipeline processing
where say:

instruction 1:   |---Fetch---|---Decode--|--Execute--|---Store----|
instruction 2:
|-----Fetch---|---Decode-|--Execute--|---Store-----|
instruction 3:
|---Fetch----|---Decode--|--Execute--|---Store----|
instruction 4:
|---Fetch----|---Decode--|--Execute--|---Store---|

instruction 1: |---Fetch----|---Decode--|--Execute--|---Store---|
instruction 2: |---Fetch----|---Decode--|--Execute--|---Store---|

Damn formatting  8^(

I'll try again:
