This is so cool, especially since my CS professor mentioned this a couple of days ago... Here's the article: http://news.com.com/2100-1006_3-5068435.html I have some friends in electrical and computer engineering too, and I'd be interested to see what they can learn about the chip once they get up into their graduate courses. Although it may take some time for this chip to work its way into desktop computers, we may eventually see something from this technology come our way. What also looks very promising is that this thing can pump out 32 billion operations per second at 500mhz. Although it has something like 4 cores, I think that this thing, after a couple of years of development, might find its way into notebooks too. There aren't much details as of now, but if I find out anything, I'll let ya'll know... So guys, remember that when you have your dual 10 ghz PowerMac that does about 2 teraflops, you can thank IBM, and The University of Texas at Austin.
