To take advantage of the exponential growth opportunities offered by this digital age, South African innovators must look to a global market for growth and expansion.

ARM rukt op in supercomputerland

De nieuwste editie van de wereldwijde ranglijst voor supercomputers is nu net weer bijgewerkt.

Zo kondigt supercomputerfabrikant Cray nu aan dat het blades met ARM-chips opneemt als optie voor zijn XC50-model.
