In the news just now:

This looks to be a significant shift in the long running developments of
silicon chip production:

... [AMD] Moves 7nm Chip Production To TSMC (Update)

Is this where we now move to other materials and more parallel ways?

Or is it Quantum all the way?!


Moore's Law:

Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense
integrated circuit doubles about every two years...
