US chip giant Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger (Pat Gelsinger) said on Thursday that the company will strive to exceed Moore’s Law and introduce new processors.First catch up with the competition in 2024, and then surpass the competition in 2025. Moore’s Law was created by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore (Gordon Moore), and it describes the development speed of processor innovation. Although the law has been questioned in recent years, Kissinger said the law “still applies.”
Kissinger said at Intel’s innovation activities: “Today we predict that in the next ten years, we will continue to maintain Moore’s Law, even faster than Moore’s Law. As managers of Moore’s Law, we will adhere to Relentlessly walk on the path of innovation.”
Intel’s leadership in the chip industry has faltered in recent years because the company has been struggling to achieve manufacturing milestones. Which caused it to loseAppleThe Mac computer processor business has also caused Intel to lag behindSamsungAnd competitors such as TSMC.
Nevertheless, Intel does not seem to give up the fight. In early October of this year, Kissinger even said the same thing, claiming that he “will never give up any idea not to run on Intel chips.”
Moore’s Law originally applied to the number of transistors on a chip. More specifically, the number of transistors on a processor doubles every two years. However, since then, the term has shifted to refer to performance and power consumption. Kissinger seems to have reverted this definition back to the number of transistors. He said that Intel expects to “reverse the curve even faster than doubling every two years.”
Kissinger said that Intel is confident of catching up with TSMC and Samsung by 2024. Through investment and upgrades to more advanced chip manufacturing technologies, the company hopes to surpass them by 2025.
With competitors like Apple Silicon driving away most of the competitors in the market, it remains to be seen whether this hope of Intel will be realized.
