NICTA, Australia’s Information and Communications Technology Research Centre, has held the first public demonstration of a prototype system using a 60GHz Gigabit wireless (GiFi) chip technology. The demonstration of wireless technology claimed to be an order of magnitude faster than anything to date comes after a research effort spanning four years, involving a team of 15 researchers.

Intel has demonstrated a working 32nm-based microprocessor which will be used in mobile and desktop systems slated for production in the fourth quarter of 2009. The new Westmere processors will include a 6-core, 12 thread range code-named Gulftown and promises increased performance over the current Core 2 models.
