Intel microprocessor 4004

This April marks the 50th Anniversary of Moore’s Law. Three years before co-founding Intel, Gordon Moore made a simple observation that has revolutionized the computing industry.   Watch the videos…

Gordon Moore stated, the number of transistors – the fundamental building blocks of the microprocessor and the digital age – incorporated on a computer chip will double every two years, resulting in increased computing power and devices that are faster, smaller and lower cost.

“The number of transistors will double every two years.”

Gordon Moore

Today Intel leads the industry in celebrating the profound impact that Moore’s Law has had on our world. Moore’s Law has continued to drive staggeringly fast progress in computing technology to deliver unprecedented economic benefits and societal changes.
