“Why do computers seem to be getting exponentially faster with time?”

 

If you are keen on technology, then you have probably seen a pattern. Specifically, it seems that computers are getting exponentially faster with time. Well, why exactly is this? Well, after many years of speculation, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore noticed that the number of transistors that could be held in an integrated circuit were doubling every two years, leading to a proposition called Moore’s law. In recent years, Moore’s law seems to be leveling off since transistors are now getting so small that quantum tunneling effects are beginning to appear, rendering transistors inoperable.
