    Intel Builds the Fastest Chip Ever
    Capable of processing 1 trillion calculations a second, Intel's latest test
    chip, when used commercially, will revolutionize computing

    [...]
    Chipmaking giant Intel (INTC) on Feb. 11 said it has successfully produced
    just such a chip, the size of a fingernail, capable of processing a
    mind-boggling 1 trillion calculations a second. The chip, which Intel
    claims is the fastest ever made, could start being used commercially in "in
    five years, if not sooner," Intel Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner
    says.

    Yeah its still 'Vapourware' but it does at least show whats possible
