Breakthrough: IBM signs first die in graphene

IBM published an article in Science magazine said that the chipmaker has succeeded for the first time ever, burning a wafer of silicon carbide with circuits and transistors with graphene coupled coils. The chip in question is a radio frequency converter capable of operating at 10 GHz. Big Blue says it has an impressive thermal stability.

Specifically, it can operate at a temperature between 300 degrees Kelvin (26.85 ° C) and 400 Kelvin (126.85 ° C) without loss of performance, increasing only the noise of a decibel. This gives a die that is not afraid of extreme temperature changes. It is a very promising first step. Graphene is a sheet composed of carbon atoms arranged in a lattice of hexagonal crystals that are commonly compared to a honeycomb.

1 TB with 500 GB platters in 2.5 "

Samsung has announced the SpintPoint M8, a 2.5-inch hard drive 1 TB who has the right idea to work with two 500GB platters, while other models use this ability three trays. The advantage of switching from three to two plates is the thickness: the majority of designs in three trays measuring 12.5 mm thick while the models with two trays merely 9.5 mm.

And with 9.5 mm, so it is compatible with virtually all models of laptops and external enclosures, while the models of 12.5 mm need to carefully choose the material. The hard drive running at 5400 rpm and has 8 MB of cache, while the interface is selected the SATA 3 Gbit / s. The increased density should allow this drive to come and tease the 7200 rpm models of the previous generation in terms of flows, although obviously they retain the advantage of access time.
