Back at the start of the computer revolution Gordon Moore cam up with the fabled Moore’s Law which states that transistor density on integrated circuits doubles about every two years.

Moore himself is now saying that his law will be obsolete in tw0 to three generations on integrated circuits. In a quote form TechWorld Moore states that the exponential growth cannot continue forever.Moore goes on to say that, we have another 10-20 years before we reach a fundamental limit, the size of the atom. He reckons that by then we will have the ability to make bigger chips with transistor budgets in the billions. Photo and story from TechWorld.com
