Prerequisite Technologies

Information Matrix technology is required to unlock the level 1 of this upgrade.

Player Tips & Tricks

  • Every level grants a 60 Hash/s bonus per Lab. This means that while the first level effectively doubles research speed (100% increase), each subsequent increase in level grants diminishing returns on as compared to the previous level.
    • For example, the second provides a 50% increase as compared to the combined output received with the first level (180 Hash/s vs. 120 Hash/s), and the third adds 33.33% increase as compared to the second level (240 Hash/s vs. 180 Hash/s).
  • Due to the effectiveness of the first level(s) it is recommended that this be researched as soon as a steady source of Information Matrices is developed, as it will compound benefits to other research projects
