    Ten times the performance, one tenth the physical size, and 70% less power.

    Is that all? :)

    When they eventually start producing 3D processors, that will be truly mind-boggling!

    When we get to genuine processing memory I'll be happy, until then, we have to wait...

    You know, for all these exciting new technologies we keep hearing about, (and have been for a while), the most exciting thing i can think of that has actually hit market in the last year or two is Intel's tri-gate transistors. we were talking about Germanium based transistors and IBM's 1Thz scale processors in 2006, six years later we still have about the same base tech as before, just refined as moore's law dictates.

    I just get tired of waiting some times.

    i once heard about dna processors 10 years ago and then nothing, does anybody what those were about, or did i make a mistake in reading the article it was a long time ago and i just skimmed read it.

    I agree, but isn't that always the case for any given point in time? At least, once the Dark Ages ages. Then again, where's my *&^%#! flying car and #$%)&! nutrition pills?!

    Not really practicle as it would take ages to set up to solve one computation and each run of the processor would only solve one problem before you had to recode the entire thing.

    Would only reallly be practicle for a massively parallel task.

    mmmmm, synthetic dna has been developed, where multiple streams of i/o can be achieved, its the accuracy of sdna that attracts devs, zero errors...
