I heard roumor that sony is working on chips in the terrahertz range and may be available within a few years....but its all hearsay VIA word of mouth. I'll believe it when I see it.

it's also a matter of being practical. You can't just have diamond cpu's, do you know how much money itll will cost produce and manufacture them??? And usually the purer the diamond, the better it performs (In terms of light travelling through it), but that means the higher end cpu's would cost tons of money.

I heard the same thing, but slightly different.

I "heard" it was a joint venture between sony and IBM..and they managed to get a chip to run near or at a THz...but then it sort disappeared (melted).

I dont think we will see or even have the need for such chips...at least not when they can pack 100 100MHz cores onto a co-processor card (just a blind example)


***EDIT

where might I find info on this photon processor and diamond processor?

The price of diamonds is totally artifical. DeBeers corp releases less than 1% of all diamonds they mine (they have 99% market share) to keep the price inflated. Maybe if we went and kicked some dutch butt we could raid their warehouse....

Not gonna happen. It would cost into the thousands, and plus AMD and Intel could make one, because technology is that advanced, but its about perfection. Intel and AMD perfect the processors they release, if they released a terrahertz chip then what about all the other processors? Prices would have to go down to like $25 for a FX-57 if a chip running at a terrahertz was to be affordable.

Intel and AMD definately have processors lined up from years ago IMO. I think it's just a matter of releasing it at the right times to make the most money.
