Sorry. The link is PORTUGUESE language only

but it says intel will have 1 Terahertz Processor in two years or less.

Is there an April fools day in Brazil? This was published on the 1st after all.

oh nooooooooooooooo! So it's only a bad joke? :(

So rendertime is still a problem to solve.

But this news from 2007 is true. 40 GHZ.

Anyway we don't have 40GHZ yet!

actually this seems to be true silvio

just search for grahene cpu and MIT and you'll find a lot more ;)

and for the real source MIT:

"...but the new graphene technology could lead to practical systems in the 500 to 1,000 gigahertz range."

Looks impressive to say the least. And I was so happy with my I7:D

Ghz is fairly irrelevant anyway...just look at the 3ghz P4's compared to a 2ghz Nehalem Xeon...or even the difference between Intel and AMD's chips. I'm sure that 1Thz processors will be made at some point but it doesn't say a lot about the actual speeds when they arrive.

it's most likely only THz due to multiplying GHz clock speeds by numbers of Cores - we'rea meant to have an Intel 80 core CPU in the next couple of years, which has already been prototyped.

I would like to see Risc architecture resurrected after the Mac community killed it in defiance in clock speed not rising.

Most people aren't aware that Macs (when they were Macs) ran a RISC based Architecture compared to the Intel/AMD CISC. What does this mean to you?

Well, lets say (and this is a loose interpretation so don't jump on me) That for every 1 processes a RISC based processor made, a CISC had to do roughly (ROUGHLY!) 4 or even more.

What does that mean in the end? Well, think about it. a 1 ghz processor running running a risc architecture would be equal to a 4ghz processor on a CISC bases architecture.

Granted over the years specialized instructions have been made to speed CISC based processes up, it would nice to see them marry the the 2 techs into something else.

I would also go the same for HD and BluRay tech. HD was 10x software based compression, BluRay is 10x with 0 compression. Put them together you get 100x the storage.

Then again there is always:

The DEC/Alpha processor was a RISC if I remember well. Nice 64 bit in the mid '90s!

Yes, because we are going to jump straight from a high end CPU clocking in at .003 THZ (3GHZ) to one running at 1 THZ (1000GHZ).

:ohmy:

That is a gross over-simplification.

Great news since it'll be a couple years before I update my computers.

Don't get excited about less render time though...by then the applications and complexity will be multiplied equally! :D It's just how things go.

yeah i still have my dec alpha 533Mhz running winNT4 (64bit!!!)
1998 it was (said in a yoda kind of way)

i was running a 64bit version of form-z (by autodessys)

that was cutting edge at the time !

it was bought because i had to generate urban planning images that i wouldn't have been able to do otherwise...:jam:

I find myself oddly missing the days I could set After Effects to do a render and have enough time to stop out at a bar for a pint before coming back to check on that. Progress has reduced the amount of time that I have to consume alcohol :(
