Moore's Law Continues

This isn’t really breaking news in the sense that Moore’s Law has chugged along consistently since Gordon Moore predicted microprocessors would double in speed every 2 years, but sooner or later we’ll face the physical limitations of the current material’s ability to be packed onto a chip. Intel and Qinetiq have developed an indium antimonide transistor, providing faster performance with 1/10 the energy consumption. Implementation of this new transistor along with developments in nanotechnology will continue to ensure your PC will be obsolete months after your purchase.
