Moore’s Law

By Cameron Waters


Who’s Law?

Gordon Moore

  • Born January 3rd 1929

  • Member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)

  • Co-Founder of Intel in 1968


So? What is it?

Moore’s Law specifies that the number of transistors on Computer Chips Roughly Doubles every Two - Three Years !

Moore’s Law isn’t a real law !


Wait…What’s a Transistor?

“A transistor is a semi conductive used to amplify and switch electronic signals” - wikipedia


So ? That’s Not THAT Important

Not Important ?

The More Transistors the more complex the device is and the fast it can go !


MIPS = Million instructions per second

This graph compares the past and future rate of transistor growth with the brain power of living things.


So Moore’s Law will go on Forever ?

Well…Not Exactly

Intel Predicted that it’s end will come between 2013 and 2018


NO ! EVERYTHING YOU SAID WAS A LIE !

At least we have the proposed Technology Singularity !

Machines building Other and Better Machines !


Any Questions ?
