On April 19, 1965, 3 years before he cofounded Intel, he predicted the number of transistors on a silicon chip would double every 12 months. Moore's law is updated in 1975 that the number of transistors on a chip would double every 18 to 24 months.In an interview with IEEE, Moore stated, "I used to give talks about how other industries might have progressed. You know, had the auto industry made progress at the same rate [as silicon microelectronics], you would have gotten a million miles per gallon of fuel, and cars th…
