You may be interested in the future of computer design?

Gene Amdahl was interested in my wafer scale computer concept. He was the designer of S370 vector mainframe computer for IBM. His wafer scale design was a few 4 inch silicon wafers at Amdahl in 1980, published in Scientific American. Mine was 8 inch with 100 8 bit cpus, multicored to be switchable to 800 bit mainframe computer tied together with shift registers.

You either process data with 100 channels of 8 bit data or 1 channel of 800 bit data or any divisions there of.

Of course, today, we go for ultra low core voltage to reduce heat and run very high frequency clocks(75 ghz target). Some production is being done in China for their future data center in each city.
