“Moore's Law, which has defined a doubling of price/performance/value produced by semi-conductors every 12 to 18 months since 1966, will continue to deliver its exponential benefits for at least another five decades, without stopping or slowing.”

  • dakyne estimated 1% and said “Moore’s Law has already terminated, if you use processor speed as a metric.on 2010-07-30
  • gwern said “Moore’s law isn’t about processor speed, though. It’s about how many transistors you get for a buck.on 2010-07-30

  • gwern estimated 5% and said ““It can’t continue forever. The nature of exponentials is that you push them out and eventually disaster happens.” not that has ended alreadyon 2010-07-31
  • dakyne said “that’s why I said 99% against, because if it already happened it would be 100%. There are several interpretations of Moore’s Law-hence the 1%.on 2010-07-31
