Moore's Law

Cloud Computing  Aug 26  Comment 
Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of...

A tenet that chip capacity periodically doubles became a way of organizing an industry. But what happens when computing strength matters less to a company, thanks to cloud computing?

ByRuss Fischer: OK, OK, so we are not yet at the end of Moore's Law, but we can SEE the end from here. Moore's Law comes to us from Gordon Moore, one of the founders of Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS) and, later, Intel Corporation (INTC). In a...

By Ed McKernan: Although many high technology investors have heard of and know the tenants of Moore's Law, I am certain that few know its full ramifications in the end products and how companies using components that follow it can be left behind...

In ?How To Create A Moore?s Law For Data? I asked the question: Why is it that adding more data to a company doesn?t automatically lead to more value? The way Moore?s Law works in computing is that increased transistor density leads to more...

We are often reminded in press and analyst reports that more data has been created in the last year than in all previous years combined. Such articles often are written in a giddy tone based on the unstated assumption that more data will mean more...

Kleiner Perkins has invested in a startup that partner John Doerr says will improve battery power by 300% compared to the usual 1-2% improvements that we normally see in the industry.


Moore's Law says that the number of transitors that can be placed (inexpensively) on an integrated circuit will double every 18-24 months. That essentially means that the speed of a chip today will operate at half the speed of a chip, of the same size, made two years from now. This unprecedented technological record of innovation has allowed electronic manufacturers to make products like smart phones, small digital cameras, and notebook computers.

Who Benefits From Moore's Law

  • Semiconductor Equipment Manufacturers: As chips become smaller and faster, the production process becomes longer and more complex. This provides new market opportunities for these equipment makers. KLA-Tencor (KLAC) is the top process and diagnostic control company in the world and stands to benefit directly from this trend. As the production process becomes more complex, companies are likely to invest more into process diagnostics and control in order to minimize defects and mistakes in the production process.
