    Moores Law in my opinion


      I don't know if anyone agrees with me on this particular opinion but here it is: I was reading an article that said Intel could no longer keep up with Moore's law because it wasn't practical. I say that they and others have not taken something into account and that something happens to be the integrated graphics (which happens to be another form of processor) that coexist with the central processing unit on the same die, once the graphics processor is taken into account then you are left with the outcome that not only has INTEL maintained Moore's law they have exceeded it.


      Congratulations INTEL.

          Well, what we have here:


          2010 - Clarkdale - max 12 EUs IGP, 900 MHz max clock. 43.2 GFLOPS peak

          2011 - SandyBridge, max 12 EU IGP, 1350 MHz max clock, 129.6 GFLOPS peak

          2012 - IvyBridge, max 16 EUs, max 1150 MHz clock, 294 GFLOPS

          2013 - Haswell, max 40 EUs, max 1300 MHz clock, 832 GFLOPS

          2014 - nothing happend, take same numbers

          2015 - Broadwell+Skylake, max 48 EUs, max 1150 MHz clock, 883 GFLOPS


          In case of Intel GPUs that`s right, by factor 20 instead of 16, but only because of starting pit was very deep. NVIDIA gets ony factor 6 at same time, AMD - 4... Unlikely next Intel solution will double GFLOPS, so the factor will be close to AMD/NVIDIA values.

            Combine the figures from both the CPU and GPU and you will probably find the sheer number of transistors on the same die has at least doubled from year to year.

              Hello All:


              I would like to thank you for the feedback provided regarding Moore's Law and Intel.


              Intel  is always developing product to provided a much better experience regarding performance.

                In transistor numbers there are no Moore`s law: from 2010 to 2015 in enthusiasts CPU line count jumps from 1170 Mil (Gulftown) to just 2600 Mil (Haswell-E).
