In 2010, the processor model that was the first to have two billion transistors on its chip was known as the Quad-Core Itanium Tukwila.

Over the years, the growth in the count of transistors on a single chip appears reasonable. Although the growth appears to be surprising fast, it is safe to say that every new chip made has about double the amount of transistors as the previous one. I believe we can expect to have chips that have 100 billion transistors on them within the next five years. Within ten years, I expect we will be seeing chips with over a trillion transistors on them.
