I.B.M. reports nanochip breakthrough

For decades silicon based chips have been the norm. Engineers have found ways to double the number of transistors on chips but their performance has not been increasing as much as it has in the past. This is the reason the computer industry has changed its design and started to use parallel computers (duo-core/quad-core processors.) I.B.M. scientists have now started to make processor chips with carbon nanotube material. This new material will allow chip makers to build smaller transistors while also increasing the speed at which they can be turned on and off (processing speed.)
