    Good chance for other chip makers to catch up...

    I thought Moores law only delt with the processor MHZ-GHZ speed, not really everything in a chip...
    Techinally Intel will now focus now only increasing it's GHZ but also other features.
    HT Tech anyone? :(

    moore's law is stupid. there has to be a limit because we simply do not have the resources to keep making things faster. It's just like bacteria. They can double in size every hour, but that can't do that forever. If moore's law is true then it wouldn't take long for chips to get so fast that we would not have a number for the speed anymore. I can't believe people buy into this stuff.

    Moore's law has nothing to do with ghz but rather the number of transistors.
