 Time's up on clock speed

"We are even building in the capability for the chip to physically morph, if required. For instance, you spot an excessive number of fails occurring in the memory--we have techniques in software that recognize those errors. But if it turns out that for whatever reason, one segment of the chip drives an extreme amount of correction, one can easily envision the system autonomically issuing a command to remove that segment. We are talking about moving off to an entirely different plane. This is very different from, "Here is the chip, here is what it does, and that is the end of it.""
