The Secret to Making Processors 1,000 Times Faster

Breakthrough: The Secret to Making Processors 1,000 Times Faster [VIDEO]

If you want to make processors 1,000 times faster, youre going to need some serious technology, right? That would be the conventional wisdom. But 3M and IBM have unlocked a secret low-tech shortcut.

The companies found a much simpler way to hit that elusive goal not by creating some spectacular new circuitry or using exotic quantum mechanics, but with the invention of a new variety of a mundane substance: glue.

This is not just any glue. Its an adhesive that dissipates heat so efficiently that layer upon layer of chips can be stacked on top of each other into silicon towers up to 100 layers high, glued together with this special adhesive that keeps things cool. The result? Faster chips for computers, laptops, smartphones and anything else that uses microprocessors.

With IBM supplying its microprocessor and silicon expertise and 3M contributing its super-cool adhesive, the two companies aim to stack together processors, memory chips and networks into monster skyscrapers of silicon they say will be 1,000 times faster than todays fastest processor.

When can we get our hands on this breakthrough tech? IBMs media relations representative Michael Corrado tells us, By the end of 2013 it should go into production. Itll show up on servers first, and then a year after that consumers might see it.

And to think, we were impressed with a promise of processors that will be 20 times faster.

Heres a video illustrating this exciting new breakthrough (no sound):

woo weee…

(imagines playing games with that kind of crap)

whoaa!!!

you can say that again, DMsia . :lol:

I assume the best cooler is water… much like that mineral oil water tank.

damn, do they sell this in miri?

Its Custom made by extreme overclocker. Way i see it, for that new processor, this coolent should be logic since heat can dissipate all over the area of the building chip.
