He passed away at his home in Hawaii, according to Intel (INTC) and Moore's family charity organization, surrounded by loved ones.
As one of the three founding members of Intel in 1968, Moore was the rolled-up-sleeves engineer who ultimately helped "Intel Inside" processors find their way into more than 80% of all personal computers in use today.

His forecast that the pattern would persist was dubbed as
