Fast technology May 5, the news, AMD, Intel have sent out the fiscal first quarter results, losses continue to increase, but the two companies' CEO is optimistic, think the bottom of the industry has arrived.
AMD CEO Zifeng Su said she believes the semiconductor industry is in for a turning point, but reiterated that Moore's Law is not dead.
In an interview with Barron's, Su said she does not believe Moore's Law is dead. She believes it has slowed down and must be continued with different actions to achieve the energy efficiency and energy benefits of Moore's Law.
As to whether Moore's Law is slowing down in part because of the price of wafers, Su said transistor costs and improvements from lower density and overall energy consumption have decreased with each generation, but AMD is still moving forward, doing a lot of work on 3nm processes and looking at 2nm processes. AMD will continue to use a architecture like Chiplet to try to get around some of the challenges of Moore's Law.
Prior to this, NV CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said that "Moore's Law is dead," which is the main reason for the price increase of its next-generation Ada Lovelace architecture GPU.
Whether Moore's Law has failed is the most frequently discussed issue in the semiconductor industry in recent years. However, since the launch of 90nm in 2004, it has been reduced to 65nm and 45nm' until it reached 22nm in 2012, which still conforms to Moore's Law. But with 22nm moving to 14nm in 2015 and 10nm or 7nm to date, the advance of Moore's Law has slowed significantly.
