In our overtly connected lives the CPU – Central Processing Unit or Microprocessor – is the engine that drives this connectivity. In the not too distant future a new generation processor is lifting it’s head just above the horizon. Based on tiny nano-magnets instead of tiny transistors, the Nano-Magnet Microprocessor is on the rise.
Relying on magnetic fields rather than electric current – flow of electrons – the Magnetic-Nano Processor could be up to 1,000,000 times more power efficient than current processors. Working at the very limits of possible efficiency might allow laptops to run for a thousand hours between charges, will an iPhone 10 be good for two days on a single charge, it is possible, the Nano-Magnetic Processor revolution is almost on us.
