A new architecture would be refreshing...

 

5nm is pretty small, i believe the width of an atom is 1nm so things can't really get much smaller than maybe 3nm imo

 

What i hate most is that since we can't get transistors much smaller we keep adding cores, but in the future who will need 32-64 cores...

Except for some highly parallelizable applications like 3d rendering and video encoding, maybe compression it's a lot of wasted power.

Even a 4-8 cores today sleep most of the time in normal average user usage.

And processor speed have been pretty much stagnant at 3-4ghz for a while now.

 

Is it me or hard drives seem to suffer from the same syndrome too? I've buy a 2tb 1.5 years ago and it still the same price now...

Still, a new architecture would be refreshing
