Computing technology has developed at a phenomenal rate in recent decades – what would once fill an entire room can now be held in the palm of your hand. So how was Moore's Law able to predict this over 50 years ago?
- Moore's law is based on past technological advancements and was formulated by Gordon Moore.
- Moore's law states that the transistor density of a circuit board doubles every two years.
- As the number of transistors increases so does the computational power, but the unit cost decreases.
- Experts believe we are now approaching the end of Moore's Law, as the technology nears its limits.
Today, hugely sophisticated computers can be held in the palm of your hand.
But originally, computers filled an entire room!
