AI chips – Thematic Research

AI chips - Thematic Research Summary Moore's law is broken. It's time for a new generation of silicon. Over five decades, Moore's law has held sway in the chip industry.

Transistors are now so tightly packed onto chips that they are barely a couple of atoms apart, and the amount of power generated within a square millimeter of silicon now produces more heat than it is possible to efficiently dissipate. The entire chip industry is changing direction. Abandoning the single-minded, "double-everything" approach, chip designs are becoming more sophisticated and complex. We are entering a new era of microprocessor design which will lead to new chip......
