Remember when NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said Moore's Law was dead (justifying GPU price increases), but AMD had a different opinion.
Speaking at a recent summit, AMD Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster dismissed Huang's claims, stressing that Moore's Law is still alive and well.
" That's not to say there won't be exciting new transistor technologies...... It's very, very clear to me that we're going to keep improving the progress of transistor technology, but they're more expensive, so you're going to have to use accelerators, GPU-accelerated, specialized features...... " Mark Papermaster adds an explanation of how AMD manages manufacturing costs. It's true that chips are becoming more complex and expensive, but every chip company is learning and adapting.
AMD had anticipated the price increase, according to Papermaster, describing it as a leading factor in the company's recent changes to the chip design structure in its processors and graphics cards.
The contrasting attitudes of the two companies are also puzzling: AMD is pushing to circumvent what is known as Moore's Law. "Death"; And NVIDIA seems to have decided to fully embrace ". Moore's Law is dead. The concept of
