Really we should be speaking about it in past tense, the death of Moore's Law is no longer news.

Moore's Law died a long time ago.

Very true.

It is actually surprising it lasted as long as it did, exponential growth over that time frame is truly ridiculous, but now it is dead with no obvious path to continue.

Interestingly, if we look at the very long term exponential growth in computing power seems to also be true since well before Moore's Law was a thing. Moving from rooms full of humans, to mechanical computers, to electromechanical, to vacuum tubes, to transistors, to ICs, the increase in computing power looks pretty exponential. I am really curious if we will come up with another step past silicon ICs and maintain the exponential growth in computing power even while Moore's Law stays dead.

Multi-chip-on-single socket mGPU would apply the AMD Ryzen (CPU) chiplet approach in the GPU space...and looking at the giant 7nm monolithic Ampere A100 just announced (54 billion transistors), this all kind of makes sense

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
