Moore Law is Dead but GPU will get 1000X faster by 2025

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang has become the first head of a major semiconductor company to say what academics have been suggesting for some time: Moore’s Law is dead.

Since 1975, the number of transistors on a chip doubled every two years. From 1965 to 1975 the number of transistors doubled every year.

“Microprocessors no longer scale at the level of performance they used to — the end of what you would call Moore’s Law,” Huang said. “Semiconductor physics prevents us from taking Dennard scaling any further.”

Huang says new GPU architectures for graphics and AI will continue the increase in performance for GPUs. He predicts 1000X more performance by 2025.
