I have a question regarding to hardware signal. There is a rule says ["] Smaller is faster. [."], which in the link states that
In high-speed machines, signal propagation is a major cause of delay;
Q: I don't believe this. I think this is just academia explanation. Or is there any diagram can show the details of this? e.g. the x-axis is number of registers/memory unit and the y-axis is the delay/time Actually you may but you don't have to answer my Q1
In most technologies we can obtain smaller memories that are faster than larger memories. This is primarily because the designer can use more power per memory cell in a smaller design;
Q: Why more power will make signal faster? Isn't that the speed of current the same regarding to the same medium?
