there is much bandwidth wsated today due to losses in copper btwn chips. agree with Samueli that we will see a lot more optical communication between chips. would stretch system performance for a few more years even after Moore's Law taps out. .

As much as one may worry about chip scaling, from a networking standpoint, do we ever wonder when "enough" will be enough? Network growth has been driven by the need to support ever increasing complexity of data interaction, with requirements now to support real time 2D visualizations essentially. Once you can deliver enough bandwidth to delivery 2 way immersive high resolution 3D to every person, will you at that point have enough bandwidth? That is the most data that any one person can consumer at any given point in time. I would be interested in others thoughts on what will drive bandwidth beyond what it is possible for humans to consume? Machine to machine?
