Interesting, they are using intersecting nm waveguides to create a multiplier matrix. Could be for real instead of the standard vapour ware optical computing dreams we have heard about for years.

Thx for sharing!

not a computer its an ASIC chip it can't handle X86 instructions or do everyday compute tasks. It can only do one thing.

neat i didnt know they targeted a droplet of tin hitting it twice with lasers to produce soft x-rays

amazing, sounds so complicated natural reaction is no way thats going to work

but it does ... chips for some of samsungs most recent smartphones are produced this way

It's more of a photonic processor than a conventional ASIC.

Also, do you think they gonna let this chip license an API, I mean without directx vulkan ect, you will not be able to market this as a gaming anything. The gaming hardware realm is rich with the good ol boys club

Moore's Law is dead. It hit it's peak years ago.

Other than miniaturization, swapping keyboards to tablets and turning your phone into your personal computer, not much has changed from a computer made in 2015 to a computer made today.

This was from back in 2016 titled "Moore’s Law Is Dead. Now What?"
[link to www.technologyreview.com (secure)]

This one titled "Moore’s Law Dead by 2022, Expert Says"
[link to www.eetimes.com (secure)]

The only ones countering it, saying it's not dead are the ones pushing AI, saying AI is the future, but do GLPers really want that? and even they say this: "Moore’s Law, by the strictest definition of doubling chip densities every two years, isn’t happening anymore."
From this article: [link to siliconangle.com (secure)]

All that looks cool and all, but that's where the Heisenberg uncertainty principle becomes a problem. We will not be seeing any of that shit anytime in our lifetimes, perhaps even beyond that.
