Bustin' makes me feel good.
Bigger and more feature-rich than last year's 4000 Series.
The Master Chief Collection is now complete on PC, but does it go out with a bang or a whimper?
Ditches resistors for quantum tunnels.
Won't offer a launch date, though.
Implements the RISC-V ISA
400,000 cores, 18GB of SRAM.
Pledges 7nm within two years.
5nm and 6nm respectively.
Nothing a suitable replacement for silicon.
No firm schedule, though.
Claim it could lead to terahertz-class processors.
Expects products in 2019.
Goes gunning for Intel.
Won't say early or late 2020, though.
Is very, very light on technical details.
Can be combined with other technologies, too.
Promises performance or power-draw boosts.
'A generation ahead' of the competition, it claims.
Both due in 2018.
Partners with Samsung, GloFo.
Concentrates on topological qubits.
New 'optimisation' process bears fruit.
New three-phase plan in place.
7nm by 2018, 5nm by 2020.
A shot in the arm for Moore's Law.
