I'm with them on this. If you have charts that show 2x performance uplift between every processor gen from either of the manufacturers, you mught have a point.
Now before you go off with guns blazing:
1. Performance doesn't scale linearly with transistor count
2. Moors law isn't a provable scientific law. It was an observation.
