Moore’s Law Buckles as Intel’s Tick-Tock Cycle Slows Down

Techpowerup is reporting that Moore’s law – that the number of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits had doubled every year since the integrated circuit was invented – may have come to an end. After being accurate for many years in CPU architecture, problems with the 10nm and smaller nodes becoming incredibly challenging. Intel’s Broadwell platform launched later than expected, late enough for Intel to launch a Haswell refresh.

In order to progress to faster, more powerful processors, the designers will have to start looking at smarter and more creative was to use the transistors to improve performance.
