Chip with 110 GHz clock frequency from IBM
According to its own statements, IBM has just completed the world's fastest semiconductor with 110 GHz. The chip, which can perform more than 200 billion operations per second, is expected to go on sale this year.
The chip, made of silicon and germanium, is said to be more than three times as fast with its 110 GHz clock frequency like a chip available today. The new material mix, which promises more performance with less power consumption, makes the chip particularly suitable for use in notebooks or handhelds. The production of the chips should be possible in today's production systems without additional effort, and thus offers a cost advantage that should not be underestimated.
