You must give them a little credit. It took from April 1976 to January 2002 to move from 1Mhz to 1Ghz. That is just shy of 26 years. It took from January 2002 to April 2005 to move from 1Ghz to 2.7Ghz. That is just a little over 3 years. 26 years for 1Ghz and 3 years for 1.7Ghz. That doesn't seem way out of line. Now I will get bashed by people that will say, but look at what Intel has done in that amount of time, and that is fine, but what I am saying is technology in general is moving much faster these days then we give it credit sometimes.
