Comment !speed (Score 1) 418

The article uses speed and number of transistors interchangeably, which is misleading. From what I can tell, they are talking about chips with 10^16 billion transistors on them, not chips clocking at 4x10^16 GHz, which is what most people think of when they hear "speed".
