Singularity link[edit]

I noticed that this article is linked to technological singularity, as a further shrinking trending. That sounds science fiction and not something serious, based on actual research and papers. Any opinions about this?Daniel de França 02:28, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

That's the point, any predictions beyond 16 nm are really in the realm of speculation and science fictions.-- 22:08, 12 November 2007 (UTC)
I agree it's a matter of speculation, but isn't there a more appropriate article to link to, e.g. one summarizing potential ways to move onwards in CPU microarchitecture? Sure, if there is no such article, this one may do, but otherwise, I think it would be nice if the subject could be narrowed down from "technological singularity" as that is an abstract, rather than technical, article on the subject. When the subject being linked from is purely technical. — Northgrove 17:03, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
I don't think that it's reasonable to say that projecting the decrease of semiconductor size along the current curve is "science fiction". Intel and other companies are actively researching how to stay ahead of this curve, and they've been developing and releasing products consistent with the curve for decades. Practically speaking, any microprocessor company who falls too far behind this curve will be out-competed.Kemery720 (talk) 05:46, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

I would appreciate a reference for the atom width, and a clarification on which element and also if this includes the space between 2 atoms of the element or not. This sentence is hopelessly ambiguous. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bvbellomo (talkcontribs) 16:29, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

11 nm[edit]

the roadmap of ITRS states 11nm in 2022 but 11 nm should come by 2015 and not 2022.can anyone interpret the data and update it at wiki

2014 Gate Length should be 11nm. For 11nm node you´ll need a Gate Length around 5.6nm. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:32, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

The 11 nm wiki article has been created, but obviously there are no substantial details to fill it with. Even 16 nm is really far out in the future. While it is possible CMOS and silicon can scale that far, the question may be would we prefer another platform altogether, like III-V or nanotubes or biology, etc. Guiding light (talk) 12:11, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Out of date?[edit]

"In addition, the chemical effects of ionizing radiation also limit reliable resolution to about 50 nm"

This is unclear to me - 32nm exists and 22nm is due in 2012 - is this old information or is it referring to a specific technique? (talk) 01:24, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

  • There is also some "As of 2009ing" which clearly marks this article as out of date. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cwlq (talkcontribs) 20:32, 23 February 2011 (UTC)

16 nm is 30 nm?[edit]

The sentence "However, for Intel, the design rule at this node designation is actually about 30 nm." does not mean anything to me, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. What design rule? What does this mean? (talk) 04:58, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

I'm guessing it includes the spacing around the transistors. Imperi (talk) 05:25, 25 May 2011 (UTC)


Intel is going to switch from 22nm directly to 14nm in 2013-2014, and after that to 10nm around 2015-2016. Also TSMC is going to use 14nm around 2014-2015. I guess every nanometer start to be important now when are are close to 10nm. -- (talk) 21:18, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Why 14nm rather than the expected 16nm[edit]

Who decided and when ? - Rod57 (talk) 01:54, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Anyone before Intel May 2011 ? - Rod57 (talk) 02:06, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
