I have a single terabyte is taking a while to fill that, and only people that store lots, an lots, and lots of movies and audio files that I know are filling up multiple 4 TB external drives.

Microwave Tech Could Produce 40 TB Hard Drives
in the Near Future:

"We’re all generating data faster than storage providers can keep up, and that problem
is only going to get worse. On Friday, Western Digital announced a potential game
changer that promises to expand the limits of traditional HDDs to up to 40TBs using a
microwave-based write head, and the company says it will be available to the public in

Hard drives sure have come a long way...

I can finally modify my Commodore 64 with a 40 TB drive lol. Now to find a big fan to cool it off.

Dang it Avalon, you c(XD LOL)-block Shirou and Reinforce, but don't protect his mind in other ways? What is wrong, you woman?
Friendship, be made! Magical power, gather! Starlight Breaker.... this world!

Quantum Computers Mainstream in 2018 and race
ahead of Supercomputer power:

"Quantum Supremacy is when quantum computers become faster than classical
computers. Once Quantum Computers surpass classical computers they will continue to
improve at a FAR more rapid pace. Doubling the transistors on a regular chip might
achieve double the performance doubling the qubits on a quantum computer can provide
an exponential speedup depending upon the kind of problem it is trying to solve. Dwave
has shown speed ups of 10,000 time or more by doubling the qubits in their quantum
annealing systems.

This week IBM Q scientists announced that they built and measured a 50 qubit processor
prototype. IBM aims to demonstrate capabilities beyond today’s classical systems with
systems of this size."


Is quantum computing going to leave Moore's Law in the dust?

Move Over Moore’s Law, Make Way for Huang’s Law:

"An exuberant Jensen Huang, who gave a keynote and popped up on stage during
various events at Nvidia’s 2018 GPU Technology Conference (GTC) held in San Jose,
Calif. last week, repeatedly made the point that due to extreme advances in
technology, graphics processing units (GPUs) are governed by a law of their own.

“There’s a new law going on,” he says, “a supercharged law.”

Huang, who is CEO of Nvidia, didn’t call it Huang’s Law; I’m guessing he’ll leave that
to others. After all, Gordon Moore wasn’t the one who gave Moore’s Law its now-
famous moniker. (Moore’s Law—Moore himself called it an observation—refers to the
regular doubling of the number of components per integrated circuit that drove a
dramatic reduction in the cost of computing power.)

But Huang did make sure nobody attending GTC missed the memo.

Just how fast does GPU technology advance? In his keynote address, Huang pointed
out that Nvidia’s GPUs today are 25 times faster than five years ago. If they were
advancing according to Moore’s law, he said, they only would have increased their
speed by a factor of 10."

Those are some bold words from the buttery smooth Huang.
