Moore's Law is a term attributed to Intel founder Gordon E. Moore who observed in 1965 that the number of transistors that could be purchased inexpensively and placed on an integrated-circuit doubles every year. He later revised this figure to every 2 years (1975). The doubling period is often mistakenly reported as "18 months" or shorter, this is due to being confused with the overall processing power of computers doubling more quickly due to factors such as increases in clock speed, increases in cache memory or improvements in chip design.
