50-fold Increase in Transistor Density is Possible by 2030

Posted by in categories: computing, innovation

Intel’s Chief Architect, Raja Koduri, has presented a roadmap for increasing the number of transistors able to fit on a chip by a factor of 50.

During a keynote presentation at this year’s Hot Chips conference (held virtually), he described the ways in which computer technology can continue to shrink over the next 10 years – helping to sustain the famous trend known as Moore’s Law.

For many years, analysts have been predicting the end of Moore’s Law, with concerns that the exponential growth in computer processing power may be slowing or about to reach a fundamental limit. However, thanks to new innovations in processor architecture and power consumption, Mr. Koduri is adamant that plenty of life remains in this trend.
