If your focus is strictly at the transistor level and improving transistor performance, then maybe you can claim a figure like 90%. But at the SoC level, the system architecture, algorithms, etc. -- the design, not the devices -- has far more impact on power and performance than any transistor-level improvements.

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.
