TSMC's research chief challenges pessimists with a bullish view on memory, 3D chip stacking and faster processor ingredients
"Enough with the doom and gloom about Moore's Law," opines Stephen Shankland in
"Computing progress charted by the famous 1965 observation, along with other chip improvements, will keep our digital devices humming ever faster, said Philip Wong, head of research at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp.
'Without any doubt, Moore's Law is well and alive. It's not dead, it's not slowing down, it's not even sick. It's well and alive,' Wong said Tuesday at the Hot Chips conference at Stanford University. He also detailed other chip developments, like sandwiching memory right on top of the processor, that he predicted will boost performance..."
