The New York Times has an article from May 4, 2016, proclaiming that Moore’s Law may have run out of steam: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/05/technology/moores-law-running-out-of-room-tech-looks-for-a-successor.html But then they take it back by saying: “Predicting the end of Moore’s Law has for years been a parlor game in Silicon Valley, and not everyone in the industry believes that what it has come to represent is nearly over.” Gordon Moore published a paper in 1965 stating that the transistor density on semiconductor chips would continue to grow. https://www.cs.utexas.edu/~fussell/courses/cs352h/papers/moore.pdf His observation was that the cost per transistor goes down as the density increases, but the manufacturing yield of the chips also decreases. So, there is an optimum point. Moore said that density would increase towards a lower cost per transistor as manufacturing processes improved over time. The technology Moore was describing became obsolete years ago. But, the idea that there was a fairly short doubling time for computer speed
