NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is confident that Moore’s Law no longer works. Moore’s law, proposed by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore in 1965, recalls that every two years the number of transistors on a crystal circuit doubles, which leads to an increase in system performance. According to NVIDIA’s top manager, those times are far behind.
The size of electronics components is already close to the limit and it is not possible to follow Moore’s law, said Jensen Huang, speaking at CES 2019. The cost of production of modern components is becoming more expensive, and technical limitations play a role.
In the past, the head of NVIDIA noted, fivefold growth was recorded every five years and a hundredfold growth every 10 years. Now this figure is at a level of several percent per year, a twofold increase will be possible only over a period of 10 years.
It is worth noting that the statements that Moore’s Law is no longer relevant are not the first year.
