80 Times More Energy Prototype Superconducting Chips that Will Soon Reach 10 Ghz

Researchers from Yokohama National University in Japan have developed a prototype microprocessor using superconductor devices that are about 80 times more energy-efficient than CMOS semiconductor devices. Computers currently use 10% of global electricity. The adiabatic quantum-flux-parametron (AQFP) is a building block for ultra-low-power, high-performance microprocessors, and other computing hardware for the next generation of data … Continue reading 80 Times More Energy Prototype Superconducting Chips that Will Soon Reach 10 Ghz
