The Graphene Copper Innovation Consortium will assist with bringing graphene to chip manufacturing, offering 10x the performance of silicon.

Yeah, i was more meaning what silicon have to do with monopoly in particular, since that wasn’t ever lacking. Nevermind, probably i just read the headline weirdly.

I do get that making qualitative leap in technology will reset the playing field, especially that afaik the chokepoint here is the chip making technology, so developing the graphene chips will make that point nonexistent.

PS. Don’t tell that to Tom Clancy, he probably still think everyone except USA is still using vacuum tubes :D Or would if he was alive anyway.

Yeah, I’m really excited to see how this develops. Since these chips have already shown to work by IBM, it’s really just a matter of bringing the cost down. If China is willing to pour money into this tech then it’s just a matter of time.
