I remember 5ghz was ground breaking speeds that needed liquid nitrogen to keep cool....lol its only gonna get crazier

depends on when we make the switch from silicon to graphene or something else like it we keep hearing about.

I know it is cool and all but there is no practical use for this. I don't know why this stuff is in the news. They only test for a minute. Now if you can run programs for about 8 hours with that speed, that would be more interesting.

Not unless there is a major change in semiconductor technology.

It been a decade since we've seen the first 3GHz processors and true 4GHz processors have only just arrived in the market.

Clock speeds are not the future. More cores and more efficient designs are the way forward.

We have yet to see a software industry start include AI processing to assist user.

GTFO from this site. This is EXACTLY the kind of news wanted here, not some "practical" bullshit about Apple or office apps.

You know those racecar events, or NFL football games, or NBA basketball games? Useless if you're looking for practical usefulness, but they are enjoying to watch.

But if you're stubborn, I'd like for you to tell a large group of football fanatics that football is useless. Preferably if they were recently hit with the news that their favorite team got steamrolled.

Sort of true.
Almost 30 years ago people didn't know what to do with ever increasing processing power and what they came up with was the graphical user interface.

Today we might either see more stuff like voice recognition and smart assistants (Siri) and/or new form factors. (tablets, project glass, etc.)
