Well there's Moore's Law, which deals in the doubling of the number of transistors on a chip every two years. But there's other 'laws' that deal
with cores, cycles per second etc. This technology deals with memory, but I'm not exactly sure if/what law applies.
Combining this memory advance with IBM's new electronic-photonic integrated chip (nanophotonics) technology --- which is thousands of times faster
than current copper/optical networks --- will bring a big boost to computer efficiency, capacity & speed. This is not even including new advances with
future processor materials such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, etc. Quantum computing. The next 10 years are going to yield computer power boost like
we haven't seen. A lot of doors are going to be opened.
