These days, forecasts about the future of Moore’s Law tend to look quite gloomy. But Intel’s outlook—at least for the next few years—is decidedly bright. Sometime in 2017, Intel will ship the first processors built using the company’s new, 10-nanometer chip-manufacturing technology. Intel says transistors produced in this way will be cheaper than those that came before, continuing the decades-long trend at the heart of Moore’s Law—and contradicting widespread talk that transistor¬-production costs have already sunk as low as they will go.
