USING LIGHT TO CONNECT COMPUTER PROCESSORS

IBM researchers have come up with a way to use light in connecting computer processors that reduces the heat by 10 times while speeding up the transmission of data by 100 times. That should help reduce energy consumption only they'll just have that many more processors.

It will be several years before the innovation will come on line.
