Silicon is NEW!
I remember working on the IBM SMS Computer system. They had cards. Each 4"x3" card (printed circuit with discrete electronic components)had two transistor gates on it and there were lots of them. The silicon chip was a blessing. At least a PC didn't take up a large, air-conditioned room.
