Moore's Law continues to thrive, -- one billion transistors on each silicon die with a 10 GHz clock is close at hand. But Pentium 4 follow-ons, we are told, have been canceled. On the other hand, Intel has made some provocative statements with Pentium M. IBM has done likewise with Power 5. Can we continue to harness the raw technology available on the chip? If so, where will we look for solutions, and what will this mean for high performance microprocessor implementations ten years from now?
