Intel: 1.2 sextillion transistors by 2016

Posted on Wednesday, September 14 2011 @ 21:27:51 CEST by

Intel CEO Paul Otellini told the audience at the IDF that the number of transistors worldwide is expected to grow to 1.2 sextillion by 2016:
‘The transition to mobility and pervasive connectivity led to the first significant uptick [of transistors in the world] in the early 2000’s, reaching 5 quintillion transistors by the end of 2005,’ said Otellini.

‘The explosion of connected devices and the corresponding data centre build-out grew transistor use to 80 quintillion between 2005 and 2010 – a 15x increase in just five years.’ Otellini’s statement was backed up with a graph showing a steep exponential curve of transistor use over five years. The next slide added another five years to the time axes and saw this curve shrink to an insignificant bump:
