FATEC 2010

Back in 1965, Intel cofounder Gordon Moore predicted that the semiconductor industry could double the number of transistors on a chip every 12 months (he later amended it to 24 months) for about the same cost. And for half a century, Moore’s Law has held true, making computers cheaper and faster and more powerful. It seems almost that long that experts have been warning that Moore’s Law would eventually run smack into the laws of physics, bringing everyone’s giddy ride to an end. It hasn’t happened yet. Justin Rattner, the chief technology officer at Intel, insists the company can keep doubling the number of transistors on a processor through several more generations of chips over the next decade.



(LYONS, Daniel. Moore’s law doesn’t matter. In: Newsweek, August 2009, p.47)
