Comment What exactly is Moore's Law? (Score 1) 101

I've heard the term for years and thought I understood it. However, this thread seems to contain a lot of debate on exactly what Moore's Law means... I don't believe it actually has anything to do with cpu power doubling or transistor density. Can somebody clarify a precise definition?

Here is my interpretation...

If I buy a CPU today for X dollars in 18 months a CPU will exist that contains roughly twice the number of transistors that will also cost X dollars to purchase.

Digital Bolex and Blackmagic Design built a fully functional retail product where Apertus beta camera is closer to a developers kit. While it could be used to make films there are better, cheaper, and easier to use alternatives out there. The crowd funding was more about expanding their community of developers than building a retail product.

The Axiom Gamma (next stage of development) is intended to be that type of device.
