    Intel turns to light beams to speed up supercomputers

    Intel will start using light pulses next year to move data at blistering speeds in supercomputers, yielding potentially massive advances in high-performance computing

    It will use optical cables to move data more quickly than conventional copper wiring for linking computing and storage units. That faster data movement should improve system performance overall.
    "If all your compute nodes are connected via photonics, it does start to make application performance look different," said Charlie Wuischpard, vice president and general manager of Intel's workstations and high-performance computing division.

    About Time

    It is taking a ridiculous amount of time to introduce this technology.

    Optical tech has been around for decades.

    Telecom Australia started installing it in the mid '80s.
    They weren't a bleeding edge tech company in those days either.

    HDDs have been screaming out for this for many years now.
    It takes stupid amounts of time to transfer a TB of files.
