KentuckyFC writes "A team at IBM has built the first high quality graphene transistors and clocked them running at 26 GHz . That doesn't quite knock silicon off its perch. The fastest silicon transistors are an order of magnitude faster than that but the record is held by indium phosphide transistors which have topped 1000 GHz. But it's not bad for a new kid on the block. It took silicon 40 years to get this far. By contrast, the first graphene transistor was built only last year. IBM says: "the work represents a significant step towards the realization of graphene-based electronics." (abstract)"

The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
