Default Let the good ol' MEGA Hertz race continue!

As we all know the cpu Mega Hertz war came to a halt after it broke the giga hertz barrier and now we are stuck in the 2.4-3ghz hole for a long time. Well, things are going to change...for the better.

Some things that the article didn't mention is graphene has a very good self cooling properties meaning it can dissipate heat almost as quickly as electricity can heat it up, which means in the future we might be seeing cpu's without a fan or even heatsinks on top of it.

Get ready for some really fast radios.

ZoomIBM has reached a new milestone in its research of graphene transistors. We learned over a year ago that IBM had achieved a radio-frequency graphene transistor with the cut-off frequency of 100 GHz. Now IBM has cranked it up even higher – hitting 155 GHz.

Graphene is a single atom-thick layer of carbon atoms bonded in a hexagonal honeycomb-like arrangement. This two-dimensional form of carbon has unique electrical, optical, mechanical and thermal properties and its technological applications are being explored intensely by IBM.

While the 155 GHz number is mighty impressive, it's not really the sort of transistor that's going to be immediately of interest to those looking for the next big personal computing technology.

IBM's work on the graphene transistor is part of the DARPA program to develop high performance radio transistors. Graphene is better suited to analog signals, as it does not have the discrete on/off characteristics of silicon.

I gotta see how well these higher GHz radios work esp batt powered. Ill prolly get in touch with one of our distributors. So far, I've worked with the TI and Nordic 2.4GHz radios

I am happy I invested in one of the largest mines of Graphite outside of China

16 core 155 GHz processors are the future Now to get Petabytes of memory, so the computer will never lag with to many programs open Plus we all need 1 Gbps internet connections

Soon enough, most of us will own mini super computers.

155 ghz cpu and gpu with nothing but a small heat sink attached to it, tons of memory made out of graphene chips and 1gbps fiber internet. Somewhere out there a geek just passed out from having too much nerdgasm.

This will make hacking much easier for the hackers.
