The big news from Intel yesterday was the announcement of photonic signalling to transfer data at an incredible 50Gbs and that is just to start.  Using four non-interfering wavelengths of light in the form of silicon lasers, Intel has found a way to combine the four wavelengths each capable of 12.5Gbs into a single signal which can be passed across to a receiver that can then split the signal into the original four beams.  They are talking of scaling up to 40 beams or 1Tbs which sounds a lot more interesting than TBS reruns.  

There were quite a few participants in Intel’s announcement, such as The Tech Report and Ars Technica if you wish to see just how well this new technology is being received.
