Supercomputers will be smaller and greener

Future supercomputers will be smaller, but more importantly, a Swiss researcher says, they will be “greener,” consuming less energy as they work.

Bruno Michel of IBM’s Zurich labs says future computers will have many processors stacked together and cooled by water flowing between them.

The aim, he says, is to reduce computers’ energy use rather than just to shrink them.
