Nevermind Moore's Law: Transistors Just Got A Whole Lot Smaller

  • Researchers have successfully created a transistor 50,000 times smaller than a strand of hair.
  • Surging past Moore’s Law, these transistors could be an exponential leap forward in computing capabilities.

Life After Silicon:

The Age of the Cup-holder

By Shlomo Maital

   Most of us are blithely unaware of how much we owe to a law – Moore’s Law, named after Intel co-founder Gordon Moore, which says in simple language that every 12 months or so, the number of transistors in a given area doubles. 553 more words
