Hewlett Packard announced that it has successfully tested a proof-of-concept computing architecture that’s memory-driven. As Hewlett Packard explains, it is “a concept that puts memory, not processing, at the center of the computing platform to realize performance and efficiency gains not possible today.” Developed as part of The Machine, HP’s computer of the future, the prototype leads the company’s efforts to transform the fundamental architecture by which all computers have been built in the past 60 years. This Hewlett Packard’s new supercomputer is capable of storing huge amounts of data in smaller spaces. It is so effective that it can dramatically reduce the space required by an entire data center. Hewlett Packard said, “It’s simulations show that memory-driven computing can achieve improved execution speeds up to 8,000 times faster than conventional computers.”
