Moore's Law graphed vs real CPUs & GPUs 1965 - 2019

(Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uvUiq_jTLM) Moore's Law has been ridiculously accurate for more than 50 years - how long will it hold up? See in this visualization how the actual transistors in CPUs and GPUs compare to the linear progression of Moore's Law. From the early days of microprocessors, to Intel dominance and the rise of GPUs.

Data sources: Too many to list here, see wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?... for Moore's Law, I took a starting point of 8000 in 1975, and worked my way forward and backward from there.
