Chip designers are sidestepping Moore’s Law slowdown with specialized processors

As easy performance advances slow down, chip designers are turning to specialized processors for neural networks, self-driving cars, and the Internet of Things to make progress in electronics design. Moore’s Law, the 1965 prediction by Intel chairman emeritus Gordon Moore that the number of components will double every year, isn’t quite what it used to […]
