Intel lights way to faster chips

Author: JT Smith

Reported at ZDNet: "When it comes to developing faster computers, Intel has seen the light.

The chipmaker recently launched a new effort inside its Microprocessor Research Lab aimed at
examining a move from using aluminum and copper wires for moving data inside computers to
using fiber-optic strands. Fiber could be used to connect components, researchers say, but it
could also eventually replace wires inside chips."
