How the Death of Moore’s Law Helps You Save Money

Ever heard of Moore’s Law? It’s an idea from the early days of microprocessor production that still matters today.

Gordon Moore, the co-founder of Intel, saw that the number of transistors on a microchip doubled about every two years. As a result, microchip performance increased dramatically after every generation. You remember those days – when every new Intel Xeon processor delivered nearly 2x the performance of the preceding generation.

But…there are limits, physical limits on the size of transistors and the complexity of chip design.
