Moore's Law

Moore, Moore's Law states that the transistor count in TRANSISTORS Processor TOSHIBA 1978 29,000 8086 (original IBM PC) integrated circuits...

An original Intel 8080 processor from 1974 contained around 4,500 transistors.

Back in 1965, Intel's George Moore observed that the speed of computers was doubling roughly every 18 months. Almost 50 years later, Moore's Law has stood the test of time.
