Moore’s Law

“..(T)he first microprocessor only had 22 hundred transistors. We are looking at something a million times that complex in the next generations—a billion transistors. What that gives us in the way of flexibility to design products is phenomenal.”

—Gordon E. Moore

In 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore saw the future. His prediction, now popularly known as Moore’s Law, states that the number of transistors on a chip doubles about every two years. This observation about silicon integration, made a reality by Intel, the world’s largest silicon supplier, has fueled the worldwide technology revolution.

Today, Intel leads the industry with:

  • A worldwide silicon fab network with three 300mm fabs now producing 65nm CPUs
  • 45nm Silicon on-target for delivery in 2007
  • Advanced technologies, such as strained silicon for improved performance, in production today
  • Research into new technologies such as high-k/metal gate and tri-gate transistors that will enable Intel to continue the 2-year cycle of Moore’s Law for the foreseeable future

Intel’s unparalleled silicon expertise gives us an edge on the competition in developing leading architectures and platforms that will continue fueling economic growth.
