The growth of microprocessors is exponential, as demonstrated by Moore's Law

by George Lovell | | 0 comments

This is a prediction made by American engineer Gordon Moore in 1965 that the number of transistors per silicon chip will double every year.

Moore's Law implies that computers become smaller, faster, and cheaper with time, as transistors on integrated circuits become more efficient.

Whilst experts have speculated on an end date; where it becomes physically impossible to create faster chips at this rate, new innovations have meant that it's still going strong nearly 60 years on!

As we push silicone to it's limit, companies like Intel and AMD are working with graphene to create quantum computing, which will spark yet more rapid growth. Allegedly, Once we make this jump, we could see a staggering 1000x increase in performance.
