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.

Let's hope they succeed on these grounds, we've heard the same about the netburst architecture, and obviously it did not scale as Intel had hoped.

Though, with the launch of cell based PS3's, the Apple switch to Intel, and the launch of Core 2 Duos---> it's been a very exciting time in computer processors, it seems it's just the start.
