For me its kinda silly- how much more computing power do desktop users really need? I mean what are you guys planning on doing in 10 years with your computer that you couldn't do now with a 200 dollar IB...or probably could have done with a P4.*

Certainly there is the processing speed increase (or rather time decrease) which helps- but my IB processor FLYS... with a SSD and some decent ram... I haven't had to wait more than a second or two for even the more major tasks...

Of course there is video editing... but Intel should butt out of that any way smile.gif

*So far computing power has scaled up.. but in the process software development has gone to hell- i mean, MS word was a real simple fast program years ago... now its bloated, "themed", "skinned" and just overkill...

Developers before were concerned because they only had 4k of ram to work with... now we just splatter in junk everywhere because the average computer has 4 gigs to waste...

And here we are using our super computers for simple text messages on the web...

I think computers, their processing tech in particular, are at a good point now... I just think they are overkill for what most people need / use them for.

Scale it down with graphene and you've just solved the world's energy problem.

Based on your logic, why didn't you stick with your Q6600 and NO SSD?

Probably for the same reason that most of us upgrade.

I upgraded my current rig from a 3800+ because Video Editing on that thing was painful, renders took HOURS to get done, Windows took 7 minutes to load, and I could go on and on...

Won't they need to further modify the lithography process in order to get to this point, if it's even possible to modify it reach this scale? And from what I understand the possible alternatives have no yet been proven in mass production scale, so it's not in intel's favor to dump money into 1 only to find out that another one is more suited for what they need.

They'll probably move from Silicon to Germanium or some combination of Group III and V elements. That seems like a much more logical step than going with a "nuclear" jump like graphene. Link

And yes, Intel does start development on cpu's WAY before they're released. I know IB was being worked at least as far back as the summer of 2008.

I'm no physicist so excuse this smile.gif Can the actual size of the chips not just increase to give the extra GHz and conform to Moore's Law? Or maybe multi-cpu/parrallel processing accelerated systems become the norm?

Stacking will extend the principles of Moore's law for another 180 years according to some estimates. There really is no need for the alarmism.
