Application of the Computer Capacity to the Analysis of Processors Evolution

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The concept of the so-called computer capacity was proposed in 2012 and applied for analysis of processors of different kinds. Here, we analyze the evolution of processors using the computer capacity as the main tool of analysis. It is shown that during the transition "from old to new" the manufacturers change the parameters that affect the computer capacity. It allows us to predict the values of parameters of following processors. Intel processors are used as the main example due to their high popularity and the accessibility of detailed description of all the technical characteristics.
