IBM Judging by details revealed in a chip conference agenda, the clock frequency race isn't over yet. IBM's Power6 processor will be able to exceed 5 gigahertz in a high-performance mode, and the second-generation Cell Broadband Engine processor from IBM, Sony and Toshiba will run at 6GHz, according to the program for the International Solid State Circuits Conference that begins February 11 in San Francisco.

According to Wikipedia's Cell Entry: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_microprocessor_implementations"&...

Voltage(V)/Frequency(GHz)/Power(W)/Die Temp(C)
0.9/2.0/1/25
0.9/3.0/2/27
1.0/3.8/3/31
1.1/4.0/4/38
1.2/4.4/7/47
1.3/5.0/11/63

IBM does use the Cell in blades, but I'm not sure how easily that would translate to a laptop though. How much and how obscure would it be is another question.
