Is Your Algorithm Green? June 14, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in computers, physics life.
I was debugging some code of mine and I realized that it was very stupidly using lots of extra CPU cycles. Of course, with modern processors, cycles equals power. Modern CPU’s use less power when they are idle. Does that mean my algorithm is bad for the environment? I’ve never though of particle physics from that point of view!
N.B. I had a lot of wine for dinner.
