Moore's Law_Videos

Doomsayers have predicted the end of Moore's Law for decades. This Intel video spoofed the doomsayers a few years ago when Intel announced Hafnium transistors as their latest solution for Moore's Law. More recently, this Intel video from May, 2011, explains the development of "3-D" transistors as the next solution to propagate Moore's Law further.
