It is, is Moore's Law still working nowadays as a rough estimate of the rate
of global digital processing capacity, or has that famous
doubling-each-18-months figure changed significantly by 2021?
I haven't been counting transistors (they're very small) but I know
that Intel has changed its "tick-tock cadence" (where they would make
the transistors smaller,"tick",one year,and introduce a new architecture
to make use of the smaller size,"tock",the next year,and repeat) to a
vaguer "process,architecture,optimization" model where they keep tweaking
the architecture while trying to get the next smaller-transistor manufacturing
process to work.
A "12th generation" desktop processor introduced this year
is only one die-shrink smaller than a "5th generation" introduced
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
