The next step in computer design and engineering?
Just looking through the newest discoveries in science and found this article which was rather interesting.
Article: Science Alert - New Material
To summaries the article, they have basically found a material that doesn't output heat but still conducts electricity.
One of the biggest issues in computer design from what I understand, is thermal factors. If you look at a timeline of GPU's, you'll see that over time there has been a growing focus on minimising heat within components. Although this material appears to be exspensive from brief research, if this doesn't produce thermal energy, then could this be the next big (exspensive) thing in computer technology? If these claims are true, I predict it will be.
This could improve performance across components massively.
