So let me make sure I understand the argument - the only thing standing between graphene and some mind boggling new chips is that " at the moment we cannot produce it in a perfect form over large areas". Wake me up when that pipe dream ends.

Natural surface roughness should be enough to tear or break up the graphene film.

Every week we read about another technology center or consortium starting up. By the time the buildings are built (which cannot be moved), much of the money and kick-off energy have been consumed. How efficient are such centers for getting research done? Is it better just to fund promising projects and allow the investigators to pool resources and share expensive capital equipment?

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.
