Intel announces the 50th anniversary of Moore's Law! While not actually a physical or natural law, Moore's Law is named after the observation from Gordon Moore in 1965 that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit roughly doubles every year (which he revised down in 1975 to doubling every two years).
This trend has continued for half a century but in the near future progress is expected to slow down significantly as at a certain point chip manufacturing hits hard limits that will prevent the rate of innovation we've seen over the last couple of decades. Moore expects the Moore's Law will be dead in the next decade or so.
April 19th marks the 50th anniversary since Gordon E. Moore published his famous observation with an article published in Electronics magazine. Today Intel leads the industry in celebrating the profound impact that Moore's Law has had on our world. Moore's Law has continued to drive staggeringly fast progress in computing technology to deliver unprecedented economic benefits and societal changes.
