Moore’s Law Tapped Out?

According to Gordon Moore, co-founder of chip giant Intel, he stated in 1965 the number of transistors on a chip will continue to double every 18-24 months.

The more transistors that can fit on a chip, the more processing power a computer has. The closer together the transistors are, the quicker they can transfer signals between them, and so the faster they run.

“It’s got to the stage where you can’t use all of the chip at the same time, you have to use parts of it at a time to keep heat down to a minimum”, says Dr Dave Watson at IBM.

It is estimated however that sometime in the next decade, Moore’s Law will reach its final, impenetrable barrier because you cannot make a wire thinner than an atom. More at BBC News.
