Intel announced during the Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop of Kyoto the creation of the faster and the smaller transistor never made: a burning at 0.02 microns (compared to 0.18 microns for the last one, the Pentium 4). Thanks to this revolutionary chip, microprocessors loading a billion of transistors and working at 20 gigahertz should be made in 2007. It is what mentions in an article "Un milliard de transistors Inside": ”with components of this size, it would be possible to put 1 billion transistors in a processor whereas a P4 only holds 42 millions!”What is the use of these powerful tools ? The video, the vocal and hand writing recognition, but also the virtual reality. This revolutionary chip, which can’t be integrated in the processors for the large public before 2007, would extend the validity of the Moore law of a few years. The law established in 1965 by Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, and who predicted that the number of transistors on a piece of silicon would double every 18 month up to two years. It is a law which extrapolation has to come up against with physical limits, already carried further many times.
