Moore’s Law 10000 Number of Transistors (Millions) 1000 1 billion transistors @ 2008 100 Pentium 4 Pentium II 10 1 486 DX 1 million transistors @ 1989 286 Pentium III Pentium 386 0.1 8086 0.01 8080 4004 8008 0.001 1965 1970 1975 1980 1985 1990 1995 2000 2005 2010 Year Number of transistors doubles every 18 months!! 2015
Cost-per-function • Historically 25% reduction every year. 1971to 2004 --- approximately 4 orders of magnitude decrease in cost in cost-per-function. Question where does this come from? Smaller Transistor size reduces the Cost-Per-Function! 1.58 x increase in transistors per die ?=? 38% reduction in cost?
