HP’s latest invention is not a server, PC, or a phone.
It is more of a combination of all of these technologies in one.
It uses clusters of specialized cores instead of small generalized cores.
Not only is it efficient, it is all connected through silicon photonics instead of copper wires that provide blazing speeds of data. To handle even more data, it uses memristors instead of standard resistors, which are capable of storing information even when there is no power.
This new system is six times more powerful than any existing server, and eight times more efficient with energy consumption. HP even talks of smartphones with 100 terabytes of memory. Unfortunately, we have to wait until around 2018 to see it at a consumer level, but we can’t wait to see what they are really capable of.
