    Is this going to be a thread where people explain DSP chips to Jack?

    If a DSP is a calculator, and a calculator is an adding machine, and an adding machine is an abacus, then, by the transitive property, a DSP is made of wood.

    ... and if it's made out of wood, then it floats, and if it floats, then it weighs the same as a duck, and if it weighs the same as a duck, then it's a witch!

    Time to mention Turing completeness. A discussion on the future viability of DSP chips would be interesting. Low latency GPU compute is possible option though.

    For some reason, the first thing that came to mind as I opened this thread was one word:

    Since the human brain is itself an immensely powerful calculator, perhaps someday an exceptionally mathematically gifted person will harness that latent power to make weird noises — using only their mouth. What a transformational moment that will be.

    I am completely operational and all my circuits are functioning perfectly.
