CPU architecture after Moore’s Law: What’s next? | Computerworld

Admins ASPIRE

As Moore’s Law loses relevance, specialization may have to replace raw speed in microprocessor design.

When considering the future of CPU architecture, some industry watchers predict excitement, and some predict boredom. But no one predicts a return to the old days, when speed doubled at least every other year.

The upbeat prognosticators include David Patterson, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, who literally wrote the textbook (with John Hennessy) on computer architecture. “This will be a renaissance era for computer architecture — these will be exciting times,” he says.
