NYT: The Increase in Chip Speed Is Accelerating, Not Slowing.
Intel has experimental CPU components running at 10 Ghz, while this year's McKinley 64-bit chip will have 221 million components including on-board cache. The acceleration in chip progress is attributed to a faster reduction in physical gate length, down to 90 nanometers -- about 360 atoms wide.Other advances include better on-chip power management, a single-chip gyroscope and an all-electronic sensor array making it possible to do DNA analysis without optical components. 4:06:45 PM
