The future is coming



Quote:
IBM has become the first company to integrate electrical and optical components on the same chip, using a standard 90nm semiconductor process. These integrated, monolithic chips will allow for cheap chip-to-chip and computer-to-computer interconnects that are thousands of times faster than current state-of-the-art copper and optical networks. Where current interconnects are generally measured in gigabits per second, IBM’s new chip is already capable of shuttling data around at terabits per second, and should scale to peta- and exabit speeds.


Quote:
Ultimately, we are talking about a standard computer chip that could be integrated into any electronic device, without significantly impacting the price. Assefa tells us that the this nanophotonic tech could, in theory, be integrated into future CPUs or SoCs. This is the chip that could power the next-generation optical interconnect between your desktop’s CPU, GPU, and RAM. This is the chip that could directly wire your PC into your ISP’s fiber-optic network, potentially unleashing terabit-or-higher download speeds. This chip is a big deal.
tl;dr: we will soon have more bandwidths than we know what to do with.

The future is always coming. The present will always be here. And the past will always be gone.

Performance like that at 90 nm leaves so much room for improvement. My dick is hard.

Downloads faster than you can blink sounds very appealing to me.

No matter how cheap this thing is to make, you can be sure they'll find some way to charge out the *** for it.
