    This is what I'm looking to see, smaller and smaller they go and getting more thrift with power consumption. Cybernetics anyone?

    Anyone that's read the Nightsdawn Trilogy from Peter Hamilton will know where I thinking. One PC in a pill please, to go thanks!

    We've had neural net cards and CMM add-on boards for some time now. The neat thing about this is just the die shrink I guess - that and IBMs name carries a bit more weight than the Advanced Computer Architectures group at York uni.

    Yeah but if it acts like a female brain it's about as useful as a chocolate tea pot

    No news on how it performs at standard compute tasks though. It would be interesting to see what sort of sacrifices have been made to get the advancements that it has!
