Intel and IBM give Moore's Law a boost
Michael McManus, DigiTimes.com, Taipei [Sunday 28 January 2007]



Intel and IBM have separately made claims of breakthroughs in transistor design that should lead to improved design in sub-micron process technology by reducing the amount of electrical leakage, and extend Moore’s Law into the next decade

According to Moore’s Law, the number of transistors on a chip roughly doubles every two years and to maintain this pace of innovation, transistors have had to continue to shrink to ever-smaller sizes. However, using current materials, the ability to shrink transistors is reaching fundamental limits because of increased power and heat issues that develop as feature sizes reach atomic levels...
