Paper Abstract

The present paper comprises an attempt to determine the possibility of applying optical principles of information processing in computing means. A brief comparative analysis is carried out as regards the possibility of using optical methods of information processing in various standard components of the new type of supercomputers. A conclusion is made that at present it is already feasible to design supercomputers bearing in mind the possibility of extending the application of optical means to 30 - 60% of the supercomputer hardware.
