To most Americans at the beginning of the silicon age in the 1950s and early 1960s, a transistor was something akin to a pocket radio you took to the beach to listen to surf music and the Beatles. Computers still filled an entire room and were meant for scientists only. That same Intel paper compares their first microprocessor, introduced in 1971, to recent versions at 32 nm and finds that processor is 4000 times as fast and uses 4000 times less energy. By 2014, Intel expects to begin producing at the 14 nm node, which means that the channel length of the transistor is less than 30 atoms across. So Where is next transistors for our life?
