Awesome concept, now we just need someone with the balls to implement it in to main stream computing to make it the standard.

yea i kno ,

if this were an Intel innovation it wld be road mapped already

but as its big blue it will b in their select big iron in a few millennia *sign*

sounds great, however making it reliable would surely be hard lol...

Remember similar things were said when a company proposed butting 4200 rpm hard disks in a personal media device.

It wont be reliability that holds this back it will be the proposed Rambus Terabyte bus and Cost issues

would you be able to overclock somthing that depends so heavily on the laws of physic's? (3.0x10^8)

u cld overlock the silicon components all as standard and the Bus in theory wld b able to handle it (a long as the modulators held up to the new V and can data rates), and im sure these will be implemented in parallel to eliminate ne potetial bottlenecks

In theory these will improve overclockability if there is no limit on the silicon side of the modulators (as the data is optical no more jacking up bus voltages) else view them as a diff bus to OC and apply normal OCing logic

This holds promise

If I start planning now they might even be released by the time I'm 50

Ya know we have some P-Series IBM servers @ work and they suck more than a highly paid french ho on a bender

What a total waste of money

If only IBM would sod off and start making decent software for other platforms
