The National Academy of Sciences recently released a National Research Council study that confirmed what many experts have been observing—computing is undergoing a radical change. The study summarizes why the processing speed of individual computer chips will no longer increase dramatically each year, discusses the implications of this for computing, and outlines what is needed to continue to improve computing performance in the future. Author Douglass Post examines the NRC study in “The Future of Computing Performance” in the July/August issue of CiSE.
