AMD sees the era of Moore's law coming to a close "Back in 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore noted that the that total the number of transistors within integrated circuits has doubled approximately every two years since 1958, and that this trend would continue "for at least ten years." It continued a lot longer than that, and in 2010 the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors finally started seeing evidence that the trend was slowing down, predicting that by the end of 2013 it would take three years for the transistor count to double." "I'm saying you are seeing the beginning of the end of Moore's law." Does the end of Moore's law mean that the sky is going to come crashing down on us? Well, yes and no. The PC industry is in terrible shape, and anything that comes along to put the brakes on progress is not good. A slower hardware upgrade cycle will mean that there will be less in the way of new CPUs and GPUs to tempt buyers. The end of Moore's law is not good for the PC." http://www.zdnet.com/amd-sees-the-era-of-moores-law-coming-to-a-close-7000013413/
