Moore’s Law – the effect on productivity

Moore’s law describes a long-term trend in the history of computing hardware. Since the invention of the integrated circuit in 1958, the number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit has increased exponentially, doubling approximately every two years. The trend was first observed by Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore in a 1965 paper.

Having been in this industry for 20 years next month I thought I’d take a quick look at how Moore’s Law really affectspre-media companies in the modern day.

Lets first look a what Moore’s Law is:

Moore's LawOk so basically every two years the computer chips embedded in our hardware will double in power, well it seems that the reality is on the high end of the computing scale and what actually affects us consumers is the technology that was already available at the high end 18 months ago just now the manufacturing process has been mastered to allow for mass production at a cinsumer affordable price.
