> I think the problem is computer design rather than the chip design --
I'm inclined to agree.
I'd actually like to see a clockless machine, one where the whole
machine is one big asynchronous oscillator, with nothing ever stalling
waiting for a clock pulse.
I suspect the reason it hasn't been done is that it's harder for humans
to chunk the design into understandable pieces that way. But if
computer assist for design ever gets good enough to design a CPU that a
human doesn't have to understand, we'll see speeds take off in a way
that makes Moore's law look sick.
But marketroids will no longer have clock rates to quote. Awgee.
