#NEWS Diamond Microchips Going Commercial Starting with 100 GHz Processors that Run Cool

After a decade of development diamond semiconductors may be ready for prime time. Even at the 100 nanometer node, they are 10X faster than silicon, enabling Moores Law to reset a decade, and processor speeds to be ramped up to the terahertz range, rather than be stuck at 5-GHz resulting in hard-to-program multi-core substitutes of pure speed.

#NEWS Moores Law Forever with Magnetic Graphene that Enables Spintronics to Encode Single Electrons

Magnetic graphene nixes the need for a bandgap, since using spintronics can handle both the logic functions and the encoding of 1s and 0s onto a single electron. Magnetic graphene may ensure it as the successor to silicon circa 2023. FULL TEXT
