‘Carbon chips’ that can make computers 1,000 times faster

IBM researchers have finally unlocked the secret to creating microchips using carbon nanotubes.
The innovation could lead us to some of the most powerful microchips ever created paving the way for injectable microchips and bendy computers.
The team, based at IBM’s laboratories in New York, suggest that their microscopic, molecular-level tubes could, in theory, be six to ten times faster than the modern-day, silicon variety with a decade.
But one day nanotube microchip technology could reach processing speeds 1,000 than silicon chips.
