Moore’s Law

The number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every 18 months. — Stephanie, Technical Trainer

Aaron Teitlebaum: “In 1965, Moore observed that “The complexity for minimum component costs has increased at a rate of roughly a factor of two per year.” In 1975 he revised it to doubling every two years. The figure of 18 months came from another Intel engineer, who said that _performance_ would double that often, since besides growing in number, transistors were also getting faster.”
