NVIDIA VP Bill Daily says Moore's Law is over

Parallel computing the answer.

In taking another swipe at Intel, NvIDIA's own VP Bill Daily has felt the need to express his opinion on why he feels Moore's Law is pretty much dead in the water and parallel computing (using a GPU, surprise surprise) is what will save the future of computing.

For those of you who have no idea what Moore's Law is, this stemmed from a paper that was published by Gordon Moore (co-founder of Intel) 45 years ago which is basically a prediction that the transistor count per area on a circuit would double every 2 years (later decreased to 18 months).

With die shrinks becoming more problematic, Bill Daily does have a point in saying that the serial process oriented workings of a CPU is inevitably reaching a limit, but putting NVIDIAs GPUs up on a pedestal and shouting out the word CUDA is hardly the answer either.
