Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, has died aged 94, according to a statement from the company. Moore was part of the group dubbed the “traitorous eight” who founded Fairchild Semiconductor in 1957, described by Intel as a tech “incubator” for Silicon Valley start-ups including AMD. He moved on to found Intel with Robert Noyce in 1968, ultimately becoming its CEO for eight years from 1979. Sudden fame greeted “Moore’s law”, in which he predicted in 1965 that processor transistor counts would double each year, though he later updated his estimate to one doubling every two years. Intel noted that Moore spent his later years on philanthropic work dealing with “environmental conservation, scientific research, higher education and the San Francisco Bay Area,” alongside wife Betty.
