Graph Technologies are Helping Sunset CISC

Grach technologies are accelerating the end of the CISC era. What lies ahead is an exciting new era where silicon is customized to optimize graph queries.

Modern native graph databases are designed using simple pointer-hopping to quickly traverse large databases. But these operations are not efficient on Complex Instruction Set Computers (CISC). In this article I show how the graph industry is helping innovative organizations design a new generation of hardware optimized for massively parallel graph analytics.
