Hot Gadget: Speed Up Your Home With 4 THz

Hot Gadget: Speed Up Your Home With 4 THz February 14, 2025 - Today is the release of the first home computer with the new 4 THz microprocessor, currently the highest performing processor available. Several analysts have doubted of the need of the 4THz processor for the home market, but the pre-sale for the last couple of weeks look positive according to the manufacturer.

The computer has the 100TB memory drive that became standard about 5 years ago, basically because the lack of interest in more storage for home computers. It's nice that they have included 1,000 movies in the package but as you can guess they are not the latest releases.

It has 512 GB RAM memory, the size of the box is 10.3" x 7.9" x 1.2" (WxDxH) and it is of course compatible with all the wireless screens that you have at home. The introduction price is set to US$ 399.

Argument: According to Moore's Law the number of transistors that could be placed on a computer chip would double every 18 months which has been the case since the 1970s. Gordon Moore has though revised his law since then which could give us a microprocessor of 4 THz by 2025.

Questions: Will there be need for more than 100 TB storage memory for the home market? What else can drive the development of home computers than moving images, as in movies and games?
