    Magnetic Chips Can Boost Computer Energy Efficiency

    In a breakthrough for energy-efficient computing, engineers at the University of California-Berkeley have shown for the first time that magnetic chips can operate with the lowest fundamental level of energy dissipation possible under the laws of thermodynamics. The findings mean that dramatic reductions in power consumption are possible as much as one-millionth the amount of […]
