This doesn't mean computers can't get a lot more faster, Huang claims the end of Moore's Law makes GPUs even better positioned to capture a larger share of the computing power market. A decade ago, the idea of GPUs replacing CPUs sounded absurd but these days we see GPUs are becoming the workhorse of choice in a lot of fields, including the fast-growing AI market.
Huang said now is an era beyond Moore's Law, which has become outdated. He stressed that both GPU computing capability and neural network performance are developing at a faster pace than set in Moore's Law.Intel on the other hand refutes this claim and said at its Technology and Manufacturing Day on September 19 that Moore's Law will not fail in the foreseeable future.
He continued that while the number of CPU transistors has grown at an annual pace of 50%, the CPU performance has advanced by only 10%, adding that designers can hardly work out more advanced parallel instruction set architectures for CPU and therefore GPU will soon replace CPU.
