    Looks sweet, but the real question is, how well will it handle Call of Duty 2 with the integrated graphics?


    In all seriousness though, is this a joke or what? Cause if it's not, I want to know how much one of these things would go for...

    the 6.8GHz chip is only "coming soon", they run at 4.0GHz for the moment (see other pages of the site).
    Quite a big step, isn't it ?
    but...is this a joke ?

    I don't know, the site itself doesn't look or sound very professional, considering what they are supposed to be doing. If you look on the 'industrial products' page, there's a picture of a decoder/transciever towards the bottom, which looks like a fibre optic cable glued onto some random surface mount chip, 2 sides of the chip aren't even used.

    It's tell tale signs like this that make me wonder, although there is the possibility that it is serious R&D work that will look a bit odd at times. The fact that they have had an exhibit at CES is a bit strange.

    They have a picture on their website that was snapped at the Jan. '06 CES show. Now that's REALLY amazing. Perhaps they're using their quantum technology to see into the future.

    yeah, also something cool, amd and intel are letting this company do what it wants. they seem to understand their technology is now outdated so they are nicely bowing out, pretty cool of them!

    I think it's a fairly poor hoax. Of course, the "Quantum-Optical" storage technology they are 'showcasing' sort of resembes "Holographic" storage - at least in terms of densities. They just seem to be proposing layering it (which of course would make it impossible to read/write). What really gives it away, however, is that they are claiming not only storage but x86-compatible proccessing technology. No way anyone is producing this without major outlay and headlines in every trade journal in the world.

    It is better to be tried by 12, than carried by 6.
