I think the challenge to Moore's law will be economic instead of engineering. We will find a way to do it but it may not be cost effective. 14nm is already teetering on the line of whether or not the shrink makes up for the cost.

I wonder if what was displayed in a simulation could be applied to real life. Though it is theoretically possible to scale down chips to 9nm, how many companies have the technical capabilities to do that, along with the financial power? Would it be feasible or profitable?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
