At MIT used a biological virus in order to speed up your computer

Whenever the computer (and any other electronic device) processes the data, there is a small delay, that is to say, the transfer of information "from one equipment to another" (e.g. from the memory to physical). The more powerful the components, the less delay, but it's still there. But very soon the approach to creation of electronic devices may change, because scientists from mit have discovered a way to avoid delays in the work. And will this virus but not a computer, and biological.

As the editors of Science Alert, citing Applied Nano Materials, this virus is a bacteriophage M13, which can be useful when used in memory with the phase transition. The fact that the transition of information from fast memory to physical memory on a hard disk takes several milliseconds.

But there is a way, roughly, "combine" both types of memory into one. This is the memory with the phase transition. Only now there is this "hybrid" memory one problem: these modules as the primary material in its composition have gallium antimonide (compound of gallium and antimony). When these devices are very very hot, destroying the GaSb.

It is useful here bacteriophage M13. He is in the course of their life is able to keep from destruction and even re-collect the particles of the GaSb. Moreover, the bacteriophage active even at quite high temperatures. The use of M13 allows you to save the performance memory with the phase transition for quite a long time. As the authors of the new memory modules you can reduce the latency times from a few milliseconds to 10 nanoseconds. In the future it will allow you to create computers with greater performance and computational power.
