The most people have gotten today is to about over 6Ghz overclocked and with heavy cooling below 0C.
Ok...where did you see this at? Toms hardware got an Intel up to 5GHz on liquid nitrogen cooling and that was the highest OC'd speed to date. So I'd like to see this 6GHz OC
Einstein and some others managed to get one to become aware and it became too intelligent too fast, they had to shut it down/"kill" it
more info I'd like some proof of.
As it is scientists can't create a robot that becomes fully self aware muchless then learning too quickly and requiring to be shut down. Got any spots that confirm this?
Also I read not too long ago that Intel had plans to hit 5GHz by 2005-2006 I believe, can't remember exactly which year, and then 10GHz by 2010
Likes been said though they need to optimize their CPU's because as it is AMD can squeeze every last bit of performance out of each GHz so AMD has the right idea and not just pushing high GHz for the sake of selling numbers.
I had also heard about getting DNA, to learn to compute instructions given to them, still utilizing a 0/1 function of course, basically a cell, such as a brain cell, would be able to act as a transistor.....we would be able to fit billions of them into a CPU, and the power would be ridiculous if we were able to harness such a thing......but which brain cells would they use? Definitely not humans as it'd would cause way too much controversy and even animals, people would protest that the companies would then begin specifically killing animals for CPUs or somethin.
I don't know....can't wait to see what the future holds
