Comment: The uses in computing (Score 1) 739

by Captal (#6796845) Attached to: Diamonds & the RIAA
While the thought of getting a cheap engagement ring that is of better quality than a real diamond excites me, what really gets me going is that diamonds will replace silicon within computer chips.

They have created p-n junctions with diamonds and one page of the article talked about creating a diamond Intel processor- cool stuff!

The article talks about how as computing gets faster and faster, the heat produced will be too much for silicon wafers. Diamonds have the highest thermal conductivity out of any material out there- meaning that we can keep pushing the gigahertz without melting processors!
