At room temperature, the new computer chip developed by IBM and Georgia Tech operates at 350 GHz, well over 100 times as fast as today’s fastest commercially available computers. It will likely take a year or two before this could reach the market, but the implications could be huge. With that significant of a jump in processing speed, it’s hard to imagine the possibilities of what your computer/cell phone/PDA/etc. will be able to do.
Researchers Say New Chip Breaks Speed Record
