Infineon has taken what it claims is the world record for the highest clocked integrated circuit with a chip that operates at 110GHz - more than 34 times faster than the top-clocked Pentium 4.
The record was broken in the company's labs in Munich. Infineon got the chip running between ten and 30 per cent faster than rival offerings, it claimed.
The IC in question, a dynamic frequency divider, was produced using its Silicon Germanium bipolar process. Infineon claims the technology can be used to build chips that will be able to operate at up to 200GHz.
Of course, none of them are designed for computing applications - Infineon's SiGe chips are being developed for high-speed communications systems such as mobile phone base stations and microwave radio links, and high frequency applications like car anti-collision systems and ultra wideband (UWB) communications devices. ®

that is truely amazing tho...
I wonder...how many GHz or THz or wutever would it take to emulate like a monkey or human or somethin

Superconductive technology is pretty fast.
But most experimental supercomputing never reaches the public...
