PC Revolution Architects It’s 47 years since the launch of silicon chip giant Intel – sparking the 1970s personal computer revolution with the world’s first microprocessor. Left to right – Andy Grove, Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore, 1978   Image credit: Intel Free Press The semiconductor pioneer has dominated first the RAM, and then the CPU market for decades. But now some industry analysts claim a general slump in PC and laptop demand could seriously challenge Intel’s vice-like grip of the market. Industry watchers say recent news that an IBM-led partnership has created the first 7 nm (nanometer) node test chips with functioning transistors, is a further indicator of possible change at the apex of the semiconductor sector. IBM 7 nm node test chips Let's put that 7 nm into [...]
