The year that 2 billion transistors were introduced on a single processor chip was 2010. I believe that the growth pattern for Intel is definitely reasonable. It is a fast growth rate and computer technology seems to jump at a high rate every 2 years. I think that by the year 2022 we will have 100 billion transistors on the processor chip. All of the sources for the information on this page can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transistor_count. Though I don’t always trust Wikipedia, it was the best diagram available for this information.
