  1. The original paper of Moore is Gordon E. Moore (1965) – Cramming more components onto integrated circuits. In Electronics, Volume 38, Number 8, April 19, 1965..

  2. Quoted from Gordon E. Moore (1965) – Cramming more components onto integrated circuits. In Electronics, Volume 38, Number 8, April 19, 1965.

  3. The source of the graph is Intel here. The original publication is Gordon E. Moore (1965) – Cramming more components onto integrated circuits. In Electronics, Volume 38, Number 8, April 19, 1965. Note the logarithmic vertical axis chosen to show the linearity of the growth rate.

  4. The source is Koomey, Berard, Sanchez, and Wong (2011) – Implications of Historical Trends in the Electrical Efficiency of Computing. In IEEE Annals of the History of Computing, 33, 3, 46–54.
    These data are based on Nordhaus 2007 with additional data added post-1985.

    Note the logarithmic vertical axis chosen to show the linearity of the growth rate.

  5. A short ungated article on this research is in the MIT Technology Review.
