With CPUs and GPUs continuing to get more powerful with each new generation, the push for ever more realistic graphics in blockbuster games shows no signs of slowing down. Today's best-looking titles already look stunning, so how much better can they possibly get? Join us as we take a look at what awaits us in the future of 3D graphics.
In context: Databases are in something of a Golden Age right now. There is an immense amount of development taking place in and around the way we store and access data. The world is obsessed with "data," and while we would not call it the "new oil," our ability to manipulate and analyze data continues to advance in important ways. But at their heart, databases are fairly straightforward things – repositories of data.
Why it matters: When people discuss maglev technology, it usually concerns train systems where it is known for allowing incredible speeds. Recent tests have explored the potential advantages maglev rails could bring to cars. The trials are early, but the results are promising.
Building sustainable computing systems is not only the conscientious thing to do, but curbing carbon emissions may result in a seismic shift in how we develop the hardware of the future.
Japan researchers break another data speed record with 1.02 petabits per second fiber optic transfer
Physicists discover "impossible" one-way superconductor that could lead to dramatically faster computers
While the race to quantum supremacy is picking up pace, it's still very early stages to call it a "competition." And yet funding is being poured into this field to help push humanity to the next big era in computing.
#ThrowBackThursday Many have tried to follow Intel co-founder Gordon Moore (of Moore's Law fame) in bringing their tech predictions into the public eye... with varying degrees of success. Every year for nearly a decade, we've revisited this TechSpot original feature to bring new quotes to your attention. Here's a taste of those now infamous quotes.
