    DARPA, the US military’s R&D division, has been awarded a Guinness World Record for creating the world’s fastest solid-state chip, clocked at one terahertz — or 1,000 gigahertz, if that’s easier to digest. DARPA’s chip handily beats out the previous record holder, which was only capable of a paltry 850GHz. Computers and radio systems that operate up in the terahertz range have some very interesting and powerful properties, from the creation of hand-held tricorders and security scanners, through to wireless networks that are hundreds of times faster than 2.4 and 5GHz WiFi.

    Yeah but, is it fast enough to run Wing Commander III?
