Is Moore's Law Dead? Intel Says No
For several years now, everyone has been saying that Moore's Law is dead. Carried. Disappeared. Non-existing. The non-law. However, there are a few people who say that Moore’s Law is not dead. Even people working at Intel. People like Jim Keller.
If you don't know who Jim Keller is, he is one of the architects of Athlon64 and Ryzen, and is now working at Intel to fix problems from years past. And he gave a presentation a few weeks ago, a presentation explaining why he believes that Moore's Law has not died and that it is still applicable.
He said that Intel currently has a plan to stack 50 times more transistors than it currently has in its processors. Keller did not provide details on when this will happen, on what generation of processors, or on what production process.
Keller also expressed his enthusiasm for the next stages of processor development, for example with the advent of dedicated calculator accelerators for AI.
If you want to watch the presentation in detail, and you have a full hour, you can see a recording below. The part about 50 times more transistors starts at the 33rd minute.
