Responding to an analyst's question, Intel CEO waxes eloquent about the advantage of Intel's manufacturing technology compared with Apple's.
Stanford researchers have created a basic system that shuns silicon in favor of imperfect lines of carbon atoms that could one day deliver even more performance and efficiency than current technology.
A DARPA director argues that the end of the Moore's Law -- which is essentially why you now have a tablet in your hand -- could come about because of insurmountable economic challenges.
From the James Bond jet belt to a "Jetsons"-inspired "motorbike in the sky," one New Zealand company is bringing the dream of jetpack travel to reality -- and thanks to a significant new investment, it could be here sooner than you think.
In this Inside Scoop, CNET's Kara Tsuboi and Stephen Shankland discuss the decades-old principle of Moore's Law and if it could ever fail. Hear how the chip industry is developing new technologies to make sure computers keep getting smaller, faster, and smarter.
In 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore foresaw an inexorable rise in chip power that eventually delivered the computer to your pocket. While long in the tooth, Moore's prediction still has plenty of life in it. Here's why.
An end to the guiding principle of chip development would come with a whimper, not a bang. That would give us time to prepare -- and to make improvements in other areas.
