Moore’s Law, the observation made by former Intel co-founder and CEO Gordon Moore in the mid 60s and revised in the mid 70s, essentially calls for the transistor density on a chip (the number of transistors that fit inside a square mm) to double every other year. Over the last few years, chip makers have had to settle for less than 100% increases in this metric although the gains have been significant. For example, the transistor density on new 5nm A14 Bionic is said to be approximately 134 million, up from roughly 90 million on the 7nm A13 Bionic. That is a 49% hike.
