IBM Announces New Chip Which Mixes Light And Copper
2012-12-10 10:35:46

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Today, IBM will announce a new process by which they can create a new computer chip with additional optical power. By combining optical links to the standard 90-nanometer chip-making procedure, IBM says they can create a chip capable of transferring data at a remarkable 25 gigabits per second, according to CNET's Stephen Shankland. The notion of combining these two technologies on one chip certainly isn´t new. IBM´s...

Bug Repellant For Supercomputers
2012-11-15 21:57:52

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online For many computer users, finding a bug or an error in their system can be more than difficult, it can be a chore with no clear beginning or ending. Personal computers of all types and platforms have become increasingly sophisticated in even the last 5 years, yet they cannot perform nearly as well as today´s supercomputers. These shelves and racks of processors and other components run so many calculations, they have to be...

Titan Computer Is Fastest
2012-11-12 19:21:07

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has completed some upgrades to their existing super computer, and they´ve become awfully proud of it. This new supercomputer combines the power of CPUs and GPUs, improving the power of the previous Jaguar supercomputer ten fold. The result: The Titan supercomputer takes up the same footprint of about 200 refrigerators and is said to be capable of calculating 20 petaflops without...

The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is the processor component of a computer system that carries out the instructions of a program. It is the primary element carrying out the computer's functions and the unit that reads and executes basic program instructions. The form, design, and execution of CPUs have radically changed since the earliest examples, but their elementary operation remains very similar. Some of the first CPUs were custom-designed as a part of a larger computer. However, this...
