PowerPC vs x86: Endianess

[DESC]The battle between PPC and X86 wages on, and this video takes a stance through demonstrating the advantaged of big endian over little endian. With some random 80’s pop mix thrown in to keep things moving and some industry standard tests this video probably isn’t worth your time.[/DESC]

  • power pc sucks! Intel rocks!!!! and eggs don’t work will for tests unless it a taste test

  • i rather stay with muy intel cchips ppc sucks

  • this is retarded… big endian isn’t more stable than little endian, its just a way of representing data… it has nothing to do with speed or efficiency of the processor… if anything, little endian is more efficient to work with for calculations involving reading/writing/manipulating memory

  • I’m not sure if you noticed or not…but the way my data is represented happens to be Grade A Eggs. Have you ever tried to balance an egg on the little end? Can’t be done! Thus its less stable. What does that say about little endian from a processor architecture stand point? Absolutely nothing. I was always amused by technology borrowing “Endianness” from Gulliver’s Travels where it originally referred to Eggs. This Joke is an expression of that amusement and inherently retarded. Laugh or don’t.

  • I didn’t notice as the video is titled “PowerPC vs x86: Endianess” and the description says “The battle between PPC and X86 wages on, and this video takes a stance through demonstrating the advantaged of big endian over little endian.” I felt it was just dumb attack on x86 without any facts. The same would apply if you took the opposing stance with PPC.

    The contents of an egg can decide its most stable orientation. Anyone (with nothing better to do) can modify an egg to stand on its small end.
