IBM is looking to combine both its proficiency for power and its environmental interests in a new effort. IBM demoed an ultra-fast optical connection earlier this week which it feels will revolutionize the world of supercomputing and IT centers, as well as eventually trickling down to the consumer.
IBM's new technology can transmit at speeds of up to 8 trillion bits a second (8 Tbps), or as IBM puts it, "equivalent to about 5,000 high-definition video streams." Better yet, the new technology only uses 100 Watts to transmit the massive amount of data -- about the energy required to power a lightbulb.
