IBM Corp engineers have demonstrated an experimental microprocessor that can run at 1,000 megahertz (MHz), about triple the speed of today's fastest commercial chips, the company says. IBM said the design and circuits used in the project eventually would be applied to chips using its 'copper chip' technology.
