Nvidia’s CEO Huang says Moore Law is dead, GPU’s advance faster
You may have heard of Moore Law. Suggested by Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, Law says, every two years transistor count of CPU’s will double, so the performance will. Law was valid for years but not recently.
Nvidia Founder and CEO Jensen Huang, told in his speak at GTC(GPU Technology Conference) China 2017 at Beijing, developments in GPU marked the death of Moore Law. Huang also stated that he was the first semiconductor company president to tell that Moore Law is dead.
With artificial neural network support, developments in GPU field left CPU’s behind. Increase in GPU performances are around %10 even though the count of transistors are around %50. Huang says that biggest internet traders of China; Alibaba, Baidu, Tencent, JD.com and iFLYTEK use Nvidia Volta GPU’s to support their clouds stacks.
Huang says he believes GPU’s will replace CPU’s in some next years if the speed of development continues. In last years Intel denied the reports that show Moore Law is dead.
