Why did Intel fail with 60 nanometers? Reiteration of the noise, information, speed and heat aspects of the breakdown of Moore's Law Conference Paper uri icon


  • The evolution of microprocessor miniaturization and performance, often described by Moore's law1,2, is close to the saturation limit. This is the part of a more general slowing down which is indicated by, among other things, the facts that Intel has failed with the 65 nm efforts and IBM has recently given up its personal computer market. In the present paper we would like to discuss some noise-related characteristic features of the present situation from the angle of noise and dissipation.
