RIP Gordon Moore - Intel Co-Founder Dies at 94

Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel Corporation, also famous for the Moore's Law died at the age of 94 because of old age. Moore's law observed that the number of transistors in an IC doubles about every two years.

His prediction has proved remarkably accurate and has helped to guide the development of the semiconductor industry.

Additionally, Moore was a key contributor to the development of several groundbreaking technologies, including the microprocessor and the memory chip.

According to Forbes, his estimated net worth in 2023 is about $7.2 billion.

    Gordon founded Intel in July 1968 along with Robert Noyce. He famously forecast in 1965 that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit would double every year – a prediction that came to be known as Moore’s Law.

    “All I was trying to do was get that message across, that by putting more and more stuff on a chip we were going to make all electronics cheaper,” Moore said in a 2008 interview.
