HP Just Turned The Computing World On Its Head

HP just announced the next revolution in the evolution of computing.  In fact, the computing solution they’ve come up with is beyond revolutionary. 80 times less energy consumed. Photons (light) are used for processor to memory communication instead of electrons. 160 petabytes of stable long term non-volatile memory, byte addressable,  accessible in under 250 nanoseconds.  That’s the equivalent…
