    Nano: Welcome to the Future: 6.8GHz 1TB RAM and 2TB HDD laptop

    AtomChip have announced a new 6.8GHz 1TB RAM and 2TB HDD laptop, which is "coming soon". Apparently it does not use a hard disc, instead it is based on "solid state AtomChip® optoelectronics". A new "non-volatile Quantum-Optical" type of RAM is used.

    Uhhh . . . . methinks its a joke . . . among other things :

    Temperature Operating: -50+125Cş
    Humidity Operating: 5 - 95%
    Shock Operating: [max]:2,000G

    You guys knew that, right . . . .

    And Aspman beat ya to it . . .

    Is it *that* far out there? It's an R&D lab...not like HP or somebody that manufactures this stuff. They're just trying to see what's feasible. 1TB of HDD space isn't that radical. Neither is 6.8 GHz. Hell, the high end desktops will have that 2 years (or less) from now. 1TB is maybe 4x larger than the largest HDD we have for high(er) end computers now.

    The big leap comes with 1TB of RAM. That's where I'd call BS. Unless they truly have some radical new approach, it's like 8-10 years in the future.

    Btw, CES has this R&D company on their site...if that counts for anything.

    Well...as a result of keezel's post I decided to do a little digging...and it seems like a legit company...

    well, if it is a joke then somebody went through alot of trouble to make to seem legit...

    And here goes what seems to be waht is going on...

    he computer should demonstrate how Quantum and Quantum-optical devices could operate in consumer electronics. The solid-state drive that replaces the traditional hard disk should be orders of magnitude faster. If AtomChip can pull this off, it would be *huge*

    There you go.. a when it happens..

    If Intel hadnt given up on the 4Ghz cpu last year.. we shoud be looking at the 5Ghz cpu in boxes by this christmas.. unfortunatly we will be looking at one that will probably benchmark out near that speed.. compared to a 1 Ghz PIII or 1Ghz Athlon or what ever..

    (aint marketing a great scam)

    Look at the pictures and see if you still think it's legit.

    The chap does apparently hold some patents in quantim computing. Doesn't stop him having a sense of humour. Maybe just a way for him to drum up interest and funding for his research.

    IE. its a funny joke yes but what if you funded me.......

    Doubt a quantum computer could be measured in the ol' GHz scale. It'll be PetaWibbles or something.

    Aspman; lol, PetaWibbles...thats better than the acctual measurment of FLOPS (FLoating-point Operations Per Second).

    Quantum computing will only become really interesting when they start messing with quantum displacment...that stuff is just freaky.
