Intel changes production strategy of processors and won´t reduce every two years. Data centers may rescued DNA soon. Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp outperform SMS threefold.
Intel changes production strategy of processors
Intel introduced the architecture of Core and with it came also tick-tock strategy od development of processors in 2006. Once was used a smaller manufacturing process, further was improved an architecture. Gradually, it came from 65nm processors up to the current 14nm. Now Intel hints at the physical limits and speeds badly to reduce chips, so tick-tock strategy was further sustainable. Newly it passes on a three phase development strategy. More information

The future of data centers is in DNA
Footprint, high energy consumption, need for cooling of waste heat. Every datacenter has these problems. The research team of Microsoft and University of Washington, however, demonstrated the possibility of storing information into DNA. According to their conclusions, the current datacenters – size of football pitches – could reduce with using of this technology on size of a sugar cube, at least in terms of information capacity. When we wait in practice? It´s still up in the air… More information
