IBM, Georgia Tech Push Chip to 500 GHz

IBM, Georgia Tech Push Chip to 500 GHz:

"IBM and Georgia Tech have successfully pushed a cryogenically cooled transistor to 500 GHz, the two organizations announced on Tuesday. After cooling down a silicon-germanium chip to approximately 451 degrees Fahrenheit below 0, or 4.5 kelvin, Georgia Tech was able to clock the transistor at 500-GHz, versus a speed of about 350-GHz at room temperature."
