Moore’s Law

Happy to see that Moore’s law of doubling computer chip speed is still intact.

You can see the exponential growth on this logarithmic scale.

In 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore made a prediction.

Moore had observed that every year, semiconductor manufacturers were able to double the number of transistors on a single microchip and halve the cost of building them.

When he was asked by Electronics magazine to contribute his perspective on the future of semiconductor manufacturing, Moore said this trend would continue.

And thanks in large part to advances in transistor miniaturization, Moore’s prediction panned out.

Today, we call his observation Moore’s Law.

This speedup massively supports the training of deep artificial intelligence models.

I’m curious to see what quantum computing will do to this graph…
