Broadcom Chairman and CTO Henry Samueli has warned that Moore's Law is breaking down and is not making chips cheaper these days.
Moore's Law is eventually going to crush Intel's opposition as companies are unable to pay the huge costs involved in R&D and new process gear.
Scientists at IBM claimed today that it has cracked a materials conundrum that may well create a new class of memory and logic chips.
Despite Moore's Law, the speed of computer chips has stagnated over recent years, with manufacturers routinely adding additional cores to increase processing power.
Intel has announced plans to introduce an advanced 3D transistor design into high-volume manufacturing at the 22-nanometer (nm) node in its upcoming "Ivy Bridge" chipset.
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is developing an "ExtremeScale" supercomputer to overcome the "limitations" of current systems.
Intel has hired former Palm and Apple VP Mike Bell to help the chip company rapidly accelerate its presence in the crowded smartphone market.
Microsoft has redesigned its latest Xbox 360 motherboard by reportedly combining the CPU, GPU and eDRAM onto a single chip.
Nvidia's chief scientist has claimed that Moore's law is no longer applicable to the silicon world of CPUs.
Scientists at the University of South Florida (USF) have created an anomaly that could allow graphene to eventually replace silicon as the primary material in electronic devices.
