    Default Technological hurdle to even faster computing overcome

    Interesting read if you can keep up with all the terminology. Basically letting computer chips communicate with light instead of electricity. Theoretically at least 1000x faster than current computer tech. Oh, and they're bringing the earliest version of it to market next year.

    And no doubt x1000 times more expensive. unless there is a giant leap in gaming requirements by then, i dont think i will be buying one. I would just be happy if SSD's were more affordable
