Jack Uldrich: IBM (NYSE: IBM) researchers announced today that they have broken the speed record for silicon-based chips. The researchers were able to rev them up to 500 gigahertz -- 250 times faster than the fastest chips in today's cell phones -- by pushing the new chips to minus-451 to keep them from melting under such high speeds.
As impressive as this is, what's even more impressive is that the chips can still operate at an amazing 350 GHz at room temperature. This speed, combined with the fact that IBM can reportedly build the chip using typical semiconductor manufacturing technology, suggests that these new chips may find their way into homes and offices with the next 18 to 24 months.
