Extreme Overclocking: Getting Your Celeron To Run At 8.20 Ghz
Posted 31 January 2010 - 10:16 AM
Ya,Uh huh, pants on the ground, make it really faster for what... 10 seconds, a minute. Pretty much useless unless it can run all day while in use. We could drop a tank from a plane at 20,000 feet and yea it would likly be the fastest production tank in the world for oh, 35 seconds. But pretty useless after it makes a giant crater hitting the ground. I suppose some pluses with the tanks is we might have a nice fish pond and have 2 tons of scrap metal. Which we could use to make a room full of 10 second processors.

8.2 Ghz will be a common clock speed 15 to 20 years from now,I hope that the cooling is a little more sophisticated than dunking the mother board in liquid nitrogen to keep the processor from melting down.
Yeah right. Moore's Cores Law states that the Luddite fallacy requires that the progress of technology be artificially thwarted to maximize profit. It's no miracle intel started looking at everything, cores, power consumption, heat dissipation, encryption, wireless wtf instead of faster processors. Granted, those are needed, especilaly in mobile computing but it's not like the progress in the automotive industry where they have real physical limits (sure semiconductors dictate limits in computing) determining how fasta car can go even though it has a billion HP at the wheels. The other concern might be security, but I doubt you're going to see faster processors until physical printers evolve where joe at home in the basement can print himself a PCB and thats not gonna happen anytime soon.
