Long description

The table has 3 columns labeled, processor, date, and transistor count. The process column lists various processes, including Intel 4004, Ay M D K 10, and I B M z 13. The dates column goes from 1971 to 2015 in various increments. The transistor count column begins at 2,300 and ends at 3,990,000,000. It breaks one million in 1989, it jumps from 9,500,000 in 1999 to 42,000,000 in 2000, it breaks one billion in 2010, and it tops out at nearly 4 billion in 2015.

The scatterplot is titled, transistor count of computer processors in semilog scale. Its x-axis goes from 1970 to 2020, and the y-axis is number of transistors from 1,000 to 10 billion. Data from the table is plotted, showing an overall linear increase.
