Then they used liquid helium to freeze their microprocessor to 451 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. Nature's coldest temperature, known as absolute zero, is just a few degrees lower, at minus 459.67 degrees Fahrenheit. With no risk of melting the chip, they pushed it to 500GHz.

You know the funny thing is, the first thought i had, when i read the first post was: "What did they do, sink it in the liquid helium?"

That's amazing, even slightly scary. What a speed...

I've heard something about 80 core...

Now if they can fix the problem with heat...

I thought they were going to come out with optical chips that use light instead of electrons.

Optical chips were mentioned over half decade ago as "being in development" and shortly to arrive on mass market.
Somehow, that didn't happen.

Maybe because now they are studing new C-Mos transistors ...without silicon...they've found a new semiconductor

500GHz... just too slow, compared with quantum chips, which don't work with the antiquate binary language, cuase every single qbits can transport/store MANY information faster... the future is overtaked!

And the freezeng system is TOO much energy expensive...
