Researchers discover ‘pruned’ microchips are faster, more energy-efficient

Posted: 04.01.11
A research consortium have discovered a techique to make average computer chips better by trimming away rarely used circuits. Error correction more than makes up for the loss. The new technique could produce breakthrough performance in image capture, multimedia, and other data-capture applications such as hearing aids. Read more on the new process here.
