The researches from the firma IBM were able to produce a micropocessor that runs at the speed of 500Ghz.
You've read correctly, it is 500Ghz. And they intend to reach a speed of 1Thz (1000Ghz). Imagine what can everything be processed by such computers. Now if those stories about thinking computers and robot vs humans don't come into mind...

Here's the link to the article - InfoWorld

I suppose it depends how many will buy it. The more buy it, the less expensive it becomes. As mentioned in the article, the chip is made "with low-cost manufacturing techniques" so maybe it won't be that expensive and soon released to the bright masses for use.

I don't think it will become available soon. You know how the market works, we are supposed to have to replace our computers every year or two, or else they will become obsolete. If they release that 500 Ghz thing, that would go against sales for a long time.

That's unlikely to appear on mass market soon, primarily for the reason that other components would limit the effective speed of such a chip.

However, if this news is true we're likely to see CPU's with speeds of 10-20 gHz in next half decade.
