Moore's Law, 1970-2100

These two graphs show the exponential growth in transistor counts from 1970 to 2100, on a logarithmic scale. The highest known transistor count for a commercially available microchip in a given year is shown in blue. Despite concerns of an imminent slowdown, Moore's Law is alive and well today and the overall trend continues, though it remains to be seen whether it can be sustained in the longer term. There is speculation that if Moore's Law continues for long enough, a technological 'Singularity' may emerge at some point later this century, radically changing society and the world in general.
