How MIT’s new biological ‘computer’ works, and what it could do in the future

How MIT’s new biological ‘computer’ works, and what it could do in the future With a fully realized ability to program cell behavior as reliably as we do computer behavior, there’s no telling what biological computing could accomplish.In 2013, this same team designed the computing strain that preceded this one: a biological “state machine.

Phase change memory can operate thousands of times faster than current RAM

Phase change memory can operate thousands of times faster than current RAM Conventional DRAM operates at nanosecond timescales, which means phase change memory could theoretically be thousands of times faster than conventional RAM.In theory, phase change memory could eventually present a solution to the so-called memory wall, or memory gap.

How Dolphin finally cracked the code on Star Wars: Clone Wars, now emulates every GameCube title

How Dolphin finally cracked the code on Star Wars: Clone Wars, now emulates every GameCube title The MMU inside the GameCube provides games with virtual memory addresses that it maps internally to physical memory locations.In the past, this killed game performance.

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect

New PC industry consortium to develop next-gen memory interconnect The entire computing industry has a memory problem, and a new consortium of industry partners, dubbed Gen-Z, hopes to solve it.What’s needed is a new memory interface that can tie these various components together, and that’s where Gen-Z comes in.

Using hardware queues to break the multi-core CPU bottleneck

Using hardware queues to break the multi-core CPU bottleneck Each CPU will have its own L2 cache, where data related to the problem is stored.In a coherent cache, CPU 0 completes part of its calculations, writes a new value to a block of memory, and then communicates that it has done so.
