How about the physical element that generates the light? Wouldn't that be just as much of an issue as the sensitivity of the receiving element? And wouldn't the speed be limited by the sensitivity of the element and conversion from copper to light then back to copper? Still, very interesting technology with enormous potential.

This is a big jump in tech...


But in 20 years we will be laughing at this...


Just 5 years ago they were laughing at the idea of .11nm process. Then they started cutting the traces with UV light...whos laughing now

i dont mean it as its not a big thing, but you guys are starting to fight over the specifics of it. Its transfers more data through the use of light. but getting nasty with each other isn't needed.

Although i may have been (and from what i am reading was) wrong, i clearly stated that i wasn't entirely sure. I did not insult the article, IBM, or you, so there was no need to behave this way.

Very interesting stuff there, good read if any of you guys are more interested in this. I personally believe light processors are not the future, quantum computing is much more promising.

LOL, I like how the font on the thread just gets smaller and smaller towards the bottom. Interesting read though.
