Article: http://arstechnica.com/business/news/2012/03/holey-chip-ibm-drills-holes-into-optical-chip-for-terabit-per-second-speed.ars

I think I'll start drilling holes in my CPU and see if it speeds up  Grin.

I'm curious of what a chip like this might do for mining though. I'm guessing it would meet the output rates of current GPU's maybe but at much less wattage use(states 7.5 watts in the article).  Go easy on me though, talking outta my ass here.

Why are they rating this chip in "bits" instead of "hertz"?  Is it a chip solely for transmission/relay of data instead of calculations?

Oh sweet, maybe now we'll have a machine that can play Crysis.

This is cool, but it isn't a CPU. It's for high speed data transfer

It is a CPU... that's the high speed interconnect... think PCI-E on crack.

It is a high speed interconnect to connect CPUs to each other and other devices.

That looks about the size I was thinking of. The more light that gets through the better. Thanks!

...for a total of 960 gigabits, just below a terabit. IBM is unveiling the prototype chip today at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference in Los Angeles, calling it "the first parallel optical transceiver to transfer one trillion bits of information per second."

wrong!

that's like saying usain bolt was the first to run 100m in 9 seconds.

Is this one of those base 10 vs base 2 problems?

yeah duh, normally i don't get caught out by that but looks like i was wrong this time... 960 'gigabits' is 1030792151040 bits.

Doesn't every optical semiconductor have holes for the light to pass through?
