why would you go smaller and faster when 2 ghz is plenty for most.
if you need more.. build small number of supercomputers.

So can any other Turing-complete computing device, if it has two input streams. They probably meant that they implemented it to some extent, rather than that this gizmo is capable of it.

The ten-year gap between working model in the lab versus mass producible version tells us how far we have to go with nanotube research. Nevertheless, a very promising material that is completely renewable.

According to Stanford's press people, it should be just over a decade before we see a commercial nanotube computer.

"What's more, carbon nanotubes and silicon
transistors can work together on the same chip, which suggests the
possibility of a hybrid transition path." Intel engineers must be salivating over this project. The automated detection of defects sounds impressive.
