I believe IBM has gotten a chip to 500GHz with liquid hydrogen or something, up from the stock clock of 200 or 250. It was definatly not a x86 chip though.

I think it is safe to say Bill Gates isn't entierlly accurate in his predictions of future technology.

its impossible to say what we will need, technology wise, in the future.

back in the ENIAC days, the president of IBM predicted a world market of no more than 12 computers... hmm

Bill Gates is smarter than all of you so fear him, fear me, and if he's right you will be owned.

That was a transistor - not a chip.


I believe IBM and several universities are researching ways to eliminate electron leak and friction inside CPUs. Apparently they found a few ways, but it'll take years to perfect the methods.

-Some university researchers found a new material that could potentially quadruple the max ghz speed.

-Some other university researchers found that using triangles and bouncing electrons off the triangles eliminates much(all?) of the heat output.

-IBM was also looking into new materials.

Found a link to this on xbox-scene.com this morning:

Quote:
According to Gates, microprocessors will get to 10 GHz, “but not much further†(…) “even 5 to 6 years out."
Source

Whether or not it works out this way, I find it hilarious that Bill would make such an assertion when he is already so famously known for saying that 640K of memory should be enough for anybody back in the DOS days.

(He denies making that statement, arguing "I've said some stupid things and some wrong things, but not that. No one involved in computers would ever say that a certain amount of memory is enough for all time." Yet here he goes, making another bold assertion about caps to processing capacity...if he's saying this, why would I not believe that he actually did say the 640K thing?)

Hmm... 10Ghz. Yummy. As if we've not got problems with hot processors right now...

As for the comment about 640K of memory, it's pretty much confirmed that he never actually said it.

Nah, if you have a quad core, and it clocks at 2.5Ghz, then you're set right?
