IBM researchers are pursuing an ambitious project to deliver supercomputers that can be held in the palm of your hand.
Google is well-known for building its own server hardware to meet the unique needs of its massive compute network, but that won't always be the case, the head of its infrastructure team said Wednesday.
Fujitsu has developed a circuit that could double data rates between CPUs in servers and supercomputers
Hewlett-Packard's attempt to come up with a new architecture for computers is "laughable" and would make trillions of dollars in software investment obsolete, a top Dell executive said Thursday.
Hewlett-Packard is reportedly developing a powerful new type of computer that draws on technologies under development at HP Labs, including memristors and silicon photonics.
