It’s no secret that finding and correcting errors in modern computer chips is an ever-growing problem. An article published this week in the New York Times (NYT) – Tiny Chips, Big Headaches – suggests the challenge is reaching critical proportion. While not especially technical, the NYT piece includes comments from chip players and cites papers by Google and Facebook (now Meta) and AMD. It’s a quick but fascinating read and reminder of how tracking down errors in today’s chips is a formidable task.
