Computer ArchitectureFall 2008 © Growth in CPU Transistor Count
Computer ArchitectureFall 2008 © Moores Law °Increased density of components on chip °Gordon Moore - cofounder of Intel °Number of transistors on a chip will double every year °Since 1970s development has slowed a little Number of transistors doubles every 18 months °Cost of a chip has remained almost unchanged
Computer ArchitectureFall 2008 © Moores Law - Contd °Higher packing density means shorter electrical paths, giving higher performance °Smaller size gives increased flexibility °Reduced power and cooling requirements °Fewer interconnections increases reliability
Computer ArchitectureFall 2008 © Moores LawWill it continue? °A number of walls on the horizon Physical process wall: impossible to continue shrinking transistor sizes -Already leading to low yield, soft-errors, process variations Power wall -Power consumption and density have also been increasing Other issues: -What to do with the transistors? -Wire delays -Memory and I/O walls -New architectures?
