    Default By 2020, you could have an exascale speed-of-light optical computer on your desk

    Optical Solver supercomputer, which will start at 9 petaflops. Optalysys thinks its Optical Solver could scale up to 17.1 exaflops by 2020. This seems like a very bold statement for an entirely novel and untested method of computing

    Interesting. There has been companies looking into light for a long time. None of them has succeeded in creating a viable processing technology yet. networking and data transfers yep. Parallel processing? nope! Hope these guys can prove it.
