About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

IBM Breaks CPU Speed Barrier

by Judy on June 20, 2006 @ 10:07 a.m. PDT

According to Reuters, IBM has developed a transistor that is capable of reaching 500 gigahertz, which is 100 times faster than the highest-end PC processors being sold today. Instead of shrinking the size of the transistor, IBM altered the silicon by adding the element germanium. Ahoy captain, super-fast computers and wireless networks on the horizon!
