Have you ever wondered how gadgets keep getting thinner, but more powerful all the time??
The simple answer is processor shrinkage thanks to Moore’s Law, which doubles the number of transistors on an integrated circuit roughly every two years.
Though Moore’s Law has slowed down in recent years and some experts even think it’s dead, chip designers continue to work their magic.
IBM, in collaboration with Samsung and GlobalFoundries, announced on Monday it’s developed the world’s first 5 nanometer (nm) silicon chip with 30 billion transistors.
