    Intel's on-die silicon photonics tech is mind-blowing says analyst

    Chip-scale optical connectivity may "mitigate Moore's Law" and could be ready in 3 years.

    'percent' is only one word.

    In British English, percent is sometimes written as two words (per cent, although percentage and percentile are written as one word). In American English, percent is the most common variant (but cf. per mille written as two words). (Wikipedia)

    Fair point, as a Brit I probably should have known that. :x

    Writing 'percent' would have be dragged over the HEXUS HQ hot coals. Using the two words is the 'house style', with certain grace given for fitting headlines when necessary when I might squidge 'pc' instead!

    "three to five year timescale"

    Hmm, let me check that against my handy list:

    Something being house style is not justification for something being wrong.

    I'm a British English and I've never seen 'per cent'.

    Same here as far as I recall. I'd only expect to see it separated if it was referring to something completely different (i.e amount of something per [US/Euro] cent).

    Erm, call me cynical, but didn't we see that "we've got photonics and it's due real soon now" from IBM back about 6-7 years ago. I also seem to remember something from Big Blue about sugar cube sized holographic storage being "imminent" at around the same time.

    Hurriedly checks calendar to make sure that April 1st hasn't snuck up on me....

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Yes the time till commercialisation may as well be "sometime in the future ". Like all the battery tech that'll double capacity and be out in a couple of years.

    Intel has been one of the biggest investors in silicon photonics technology. In my view, the chip to chip stuff is much farther out; they are just sampling QSFP PAM4 transceivers for data centers. But I have felt all along the end game was bigger--they are trying to own the entire cloud compute and data center space. The need the chip to chip to justify the investment.
