Subject: Intel To Introduce Terahertz Chips?
Here's a snazzy article over at MSNBC discussing Intel's introduction to the technology behind chips that may eventually rate in the Terahertz. Exactly how fast is a chip rated in Terahertz?
Processors will contain a billion transistors (compared with 42 million today on a Pentium 4) switching off and on a trillion times a second. In human terms, it would take a person 15,000 years to flip a light switch a trillion times, Willoner said. Current transistors top out at 100 billion operations per secondOk, forget liquid cooled computers, I'm thinking hydrogen if not liquid oxygen to cool these puppies off!
