Intel has said that new technologies in chip manufacturing will favor better energy consumption over faster execution times – effectively calling an end to ‘Moore’s Law’, which successfully predicted the doubling of density in integrated circuits, and therefore speed, every two years.
The author is confusing Moore's Law which speaks only about the density of components, not about speed. Many people think that the 2 are the same thing.
As I said there in a reply as KvF:
This will be a great leap forward both for the average user and the power user alike. The average user will still get all the computational power they need at a reduced cost and a smaller carbon footprint than current tech allows, and the power user will have two options available as they do now, but the cpu option will be even brighter. Power users that need a lot of number crunching ability have generally used either an over-clocked cpu or the better alternative, gpus to do the computational work as is being used in the current deep learning
applications such as self driving cars and bio research. The limiting factor in over-clocking has always been inefficiencies in the processor that generate heat as more voltage is applied, with a more efficient processor the ability to gain even faster speeds per core than we can currently will become a reality since the processor uses less energy to begin with and therefore produces less heat, there will be even greater room for higher over-clocks. This new generation of chips will be a definite win-win.
