Optical better


    The Intel Connects Cables claim that they can replace traditional 24-gauge copper cables with an optical alternative.It claims that such a move would allow larger clusters that are easier to cool.

The new cables can support 20 Gbits/second for Infiniband-based clusters and have a reach of 100 meters compared to about 10 meters for copper.
