For over four decades, progress in processing power has ridden the crest of a massive breaker called Moore’s Law. We needed only to position our processing boards along the line of travel at the right time, and our software was continuously accelerated with almost no additional intervention from us. In fact, from a performance perspective, software technology itself has often gone backward – squandering seemingly abundant processing resources in exchange for faster development times and higher levels of programming abstraction.
Today, however, Moore’s Law may be finally washing up. Even though physics may … Read More → "Changing Waves"
