Huge speed increases on the way?

This from "another mag" click here and this from the Wikipedia click here suggests there could be huge increases in processor speeds on the way in the not too distant future.

"Some models suggest terahertz frequencies are achievable with this material."

It's the end of the (computing) world as we know it!

As the song goes......

i for one am looking forward to the new breed of proccessors and to see what speeds can be acheived.
It seems like only yesterday we all marvelled at the 1Ghz cpu.

What are we going to be doing that will make use of such speeds?

Well the bloatware can get even more bloated and the pc will still be able to be reasonably quick!

I've recently upgraded to an AMD Athlon64 4000+ and that seems plenty fast enough for now.

No doubt it will be "vital" to have one of these new processors just to run the "full-monty" version of Vista.
