A Notebook Wonder: 6.8GHz CPU and 1TB RAM

Atom Chip Corporation published a description of a notebook with rather impressive specifications: 6.8GHz CPU, 1TB Quantum-Optical non-volatile RAM (NvIOpSRAM-SODIMM 200-pin), 2TB non-volatile Quantum RAM (NvIOpRAM-ATA IDE).

According to the company, the new memory offer high data density (3.2GB per cubic millimeter) and performance (6GB/s write, 8GB/s read). The NvIOpRAM bases on the discovered magnetic quantum-optical phenomenon in porous silicon, entitled after the name of its discoverer, the Gendlin Effect.

The AtomChip Quantum II CPU operates at 6.8GHz, has 256MB of internal memory and very low power consumption. 4 x Intel Pentium M 1.7GHz CPUs are an option.

The prototype configuration also includes: 12.1" WXGA LCD (1280x800, 16:10), 1.3Mp CMOS cam, 2 x Intel855GME graphics controllers, DVD Multi drive, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g), GPRS, 10/100 Base-T LAN, MDC Fax/Modem V.90/V.92. A 6-cell Li-Ion battery provides 8 (AtomChip Quantum II) or 3 (4 x Intel Pentium M) hours of operation. The PC can work under Microsoft Windows XP or Linux.

We know it September 10, not April 1. Since Atom Chip Corporation promises to showcase the notebook at CES 2006 in January, we hope the majority of specs will come true. In this case, the only obstacle will be a rather high price of $8500 — $15000 mentioned at the official website.
