Wired has posted a story in which Gordon Moore predicts his own law (the one that states computer processing power will double every two years) will be physically impossible in ten to fifteen years. He states this as once a processor gets to be less than 1nm you cannot make a processor of 0nm. Eventually it just physically doesn’t exist. This law, of course, is based on transistors which can be fit on a processor. There is nothing saying that at some point a whole new method of processing won’t be invented, which would create a new version of Moore’s Law.
