Intel co-founder and creator of Moore’s Law, Gordon Moore, has passed away. #RIPGordonMoore

Gordon Moore, a co-founder of Intel and influential figure in the development of modern computing, has died at the age of 94. Alongside fellow member of the “traitorous eight” Robert Noyce, Moore founded Intel, originally named Integrated Electronics, in 1968. After eight years as CEO, he became chairman of the company in 1979. Yet Moore is perhaps best known for his eponymous 1965 prediction Moore’s Law, which estimated that the transistor count in processors would double roughly every year. Though the prediction was revised to every two years within a decade, the idea held true for some time.

Moore’s role in the development of the technology powering modern computing aside, he was also a philanthropist, according to Intel. Along with his wife, Moore worked on matters relating to “environmental conservation, scientific research, higher education and the San Francisco Bay Area”.
