It would be nice to see speed of 4ghz+ without any overclock needed.
i think that it would be nice to have this but it would require a major overhaul of motherboards and the technology that transfers data becasue at the moment becasue of how fast optical drives and hardrives are, there wouldnt be much benerfit from this at this time and that is if you could find a motherboadr that would be compatable
Next time instead of GHz we'd be talking about how many THz your CPU is clocked at.
OMG it sover 9000 THz !!!!!
i haz uber pwnd u
these transistors are twice as fast as current silicon ones, and can (possibly) scale to another order of magnitude up
which means approximately 10x - 20x faster than current CPU offerings
doesnt sound too shabby
i dont know about you, but i dont much care for the clock speed
it is how efficent they are is what really counts
for example a core i3 is more efficent and faster than the same speed core 2 duo
thsi is the kind of thin i want not just more speed
I might be way off here, but I think it's a logical guess.
If you replace every transister in mobo/cpu/ram etc, will they all operate faster, if they operate at all?
There be only one response for such an incredible speed boost...
"BY THE EMPEROR IT SHALL BE SO!" I hereby demand that these things are used excessivly in future technology... of course said demands will fail, however... I can deal with a 60GHz CPU....
im quite interested in the response to this, from the companies like ARM and Intel though. If they manage to pull off a Graphene based CPU, they could have a massive advantage against the rest of their rivals. However, im sure Intel would manage with the amount of money theyve been spending last month. i wish they could spend 9 billion on good ol R and D
as long as I dont need a 20,000 watt PSU to handle a 1THZ, that would be cool, honestly, even 1kw systems now are ridiculous,lol
That'll suck the socket out of your wall!
I just got rid of my 64-core 46Ghz cpu, got quite old tbh. Planning to upgrade to the latest Intel 128-core 80Ghz plus a pair of Corsair DDR8 128GB ram. Though not sure wether it can run Crysis 2?
I'm still waiting to release the kill bots, we need more power!
Manipulating graphene is very tricky, compared to silicon. Bulk silicon, can be cut, etched, eroded, in a very regular way. Graphene, SWNT and MWNT can be a bitch, and don't offer the same categories of manipulation that silicon does. Thus the equipment to make a decent transistor array will need to be invented before graphene becomes the de facto material.
just the leap in what you could do on the software end with that kind of speed.. huang needs to switch to graphene and then yell at everybody
Finally something that can run Crysis at 60 FPS?
What about the heat generated by one graphene transistor? Just because one can operate at 300GHz, it doesn't mean that a whole load put together will work at this frequency.
*goes off to look at the thermal properties of graphene versus silicon*
That's right, but what about Crysis 2?
I'm thinking about adding another 2 GTX 470 so I can have 3-way SLI. I would then be really happy if I can run everything on max at 23 - 36 FPS. I would be a happy man
Well, the thermal conductivity of graphene seems to be quite amazing, so heat will be transferred far better out of a chip compared to silicon. I can't find any thermal expansion numbers though (though I've found it has a negative CTE between 30 and 300K).
