New IBM Chip Sets Speed Record

Researchers at IBM and the Georgia Institute of Technology are set to announce Tuesday that they have broken the speed record for silicon-based chips with a semiconductor that operates 250 times faster than chips commonly used now.

The NEW YORK TIMES reports: The achievement is a major step in the evolution of computer semiconductor technology that could eventually lead to faster networks and more powerful electronics at lower prices, said Bernard Meyerson, vice president and chief technologist in IBM 's systems and technology group. He said developments like this one typically find their way into commercial products in 12 to 24 months.

We've been heading that way for a while. It's just taken longer to accept for others. PC is 99% all digital for over a decade... other gaming will fully get there soon enough.

Thats great for pc, completely different environment.

was just about to say the same hahaha

The article says a pro for digital is that it's "often the cheaper option"
That definitely hasn't been my experience.

shinoff21833d ago

It's almost never the case. Especially more so after a month or two. I bought Alan wake remaster for ps5 for 1049 off Amazon. It's never been below 12 bucks digital. So many other games are often way cheaper on disc. That's some bs their pushing and it's annoying because that's what people see it's assh articles like this.

It might be the case for rare physical releases sure but those aren't majority at all.

It only ever applies when they are deep discounts, but that happens with physical too, generally physical is cheaper overall if you exclude sales.

Are we headed there? Have you been to a Best Buy, Target, Walmart lately, in the video game or movie/music sections? They are a fraction of the size they once were, so yeah, we have been headed there and most of my games from the last two gens for all of my consoles are digital, so I am fine with it. It is happening whether you like it or not, and at some point will be all digital.

shinoff21833d ago

Walmart depends on which one you go to. Walmart near my house(just outside the little more dangerous neighborhoods) they lack its never filled, alot of double triple rows.

2 other Walmart around my city(better neighborhoods) are stocked pretty damn deep. Aside for Xbox which has dwindled.

It'll be a terrible future.

Physical now and forever.

I still love physical games to own but in the future, it will be pure digital one day. If physical games still want to exist, they'll have to make a new disc drive which will never happen. Downloading games is now much faster to install than installing physical games and filesizes aren't getting smaller over the years. Next gen consoles with physical games are mostly like 2 discs to install but depends which games. Terrible future or not, it will be one day. I'm an old school gamer who still love to put disc in console and just reading instead of installing.

What’s with the “are we” topic? Hello? Yes. Thanks gamespew for catching the late bus to the discussion and delivering as it is an original idea/topic .
