    "The research results obtained from the quantum well transistors research showed a 10x lower power consumption for the same performance, or conversely a 3x improvement in transistor performance for the same power consumption, as compared to today's traditional transistors."

    Interesting topic...is there no end to what one can learn as a Techspotter?

    Followed the link and learned more re:Moore's Law:-describes the prediction that the processing power of computer chip will double approximately every 18 months.

    Probably will have a good impact on Energy Star rated products that contain microprocessors and impact on other areas of electronics.
