Intel developing optical connects

gets rid of copper use in computers … “Intel is developing an optical interconnect technology to replace copper ribbons in laptop computers and servers. Justin Rattner, Intel senior fellow and director of the company’s systems technology labs, said that the technology should be ready for commercialisation within three to five years.

‘We have built short-range optical links that we believe will be cheaper, less noisy, and smaller than copper ribbons. You can get high-speed signals and you can get rid of the need of having to use copper ribbons,’ he said. “
