End of Moore's law
Seems that scaling down what is the essence of Moore's law is dead. At least for NAND until emerge of EUV who know when. End don't forget BAD HARDWARE WEEK was first as always, when bad news are in sight.
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Do you see anything in 14nm in the map above in 2014?
In the end you will get a chip that looks like it was built on a 22nm process, is sized like it was built on a 20nm process, but has the dynamic range and power consumption of a 14nm chip. Predicted at BAD HARDWARE WEEK long time ago. Oh yeah, what about chip area scaling? Between a 7% and 15% shrink, thanks to the poly and contact pitch work.
