Intel Creates Fastest Transistors

Intel has developed what it says is the fastest and smallest transistor ever. In its research labs in Hillsboro, Oregon, Intel engineers have designed and manufactured a handful of transistors that are only 20 nanometers, or 0.02 microns, in size. By comparison, the transistors found in the latest chips in use today measure 0.18 microns from one side of the transistor gate to the other. The implications of developing such small and fast transistors are significant: Silicon will be able to be used to make chips until 2007, and it will make possible microprocessors containing close to 1 billion transistors running at 20 gigahertz by that year. Today's Pentium 4 processors have about 42 million transistors and run at 1.7 gigahertz.

20 Ghz dude...

*puts on his helmet*
*ties self to chair*
*rolls chair up to computer*

And to think, less then half a decade away ^_^
