Moore's Law Proven Once Again...

Monday, January 29, 2007

Recent announcements by Intel and IBM have again proven that Moore's Law still hold true to this day. Both companies announced advancements that will cram more transistors per processor, effectively creating more powerful and efficient processors. This other article does caution that the thinning profit margins may threaten the fast pace of the microchip arms race. Over on the consumer side though, its all good news. I feed off the bottom of the technology ecosystem, being a proponent of budget computing, so this is definitely good news as it will push down the prices of older chips even more. More value for your money, so to speak. Add to this AMD's recent announcement of the DTX form factor standard that will allow manufacturers to create components for a unified Small Form Factor standard royalty-free. We'll see smaller, more powerful machines in the not-so-distant future. I'm already filling up my piggy bank in anticipation! ;-)
