    Microprocessor is like your penis. It's harder to do anything useful when it's small. It's the limit of nature.

    It's all about parallel computing and multithreading now, baby. Physics start to limit any smaller processor variants.

          not to own one
          Illegal not to have one, but you will just be a licensed user and not the owner.

          No. Quantum computers won't replace traditional computers. Quantum computers are only better at some very specific tasks. For the other tasks, classical computers will still be better/cheaper than quantum computers

    clock speed correlates to transistor size and we are near the limit of how small we can make them

    Cooling requirements for higher clock speeds are not practical.

    From what I know, they are focusing more on the integrated GPU and other aspects of the CPU rather than clock speed.
    Because people use their PCs more to watch videos, streams, or play vidya.
    Decoding a high res video requires some GPU. Why throw that at the dedicated GPU when it is a simple game or some average online video?
    Helps with laptops too.

    Computers are at the limit and moores law is dead forever. There will not be a new paradigm and Kurzweil was wrong. This is it.
    Quantum computers will be built and they will help with chemistry and materials engineering and such but they aren't going to be a great paradigm shift in most ways.
    Computers 20 years from now won't much better than they are now. The laptop of the future is the modern laptop.

    I'm going to say what people refuse to utter anywhere: monopoly. Humanity made a massive mistake in allowing the USA to monopolize the microchip industry. It made an even bigger mistake succumbing to its asphyxiating patent laws.

    In a healthy world, Europe would've picked up in 2000 and there would've been 5 TSMCs spread around the continent right now. It's not that Europe lacks the manpower, which it truly doesn't. It's not that it lacks resources and good locations for these plants. It's not that it lacks a technological education. It's not that it lacks technological production. But it lacks the independence to break away from US domination, because of which it doesn't have an IT sector even to this day. And the USA is a decaying empire on its death bed that passes inefficient decrees to ensure its limping survival, such as forced diversity quotas. This is empirically not efficient, and everyone knows it, but no one can say anything about it, because the American society would erupt in a civil war had people in authority been able to voice it so clearly. They cannot voice it because there is an economic cost penalty to every company that walks out of line, which is cancellation, so it all defaults into an asphyxiating monopoly against which no one can do shit. It cannot innovate anymore, and it doesn't even need to, because it's the monopoly and it doesn't need to prove anything to anyone anymore. It had to in the early 90s and 2000s to prove how superior the US way was to the collapsed Soviet Union, and it worked and truly brain drained every country, and now it doesn't have to because there's no one else to challenge it. Because it's a defined monopoly that cannot be challenged for a good decade at a minimum. Even China is stuck at re-producing GPUs from literally the early 2000s because they do not have access to TSMC. Europe cannot produce even that, nor will it ever produce it without getting invaded again.

    Transistors are getting so small that quantum effects need to be considered.
    We are near the physical limits of transistor sizes.
    Chip design is starting to switch from 2D to 3D.

        WTF...
        Frequency and transistor sizes are not the same thing.
        Dude... put the bong down and take a nap.
