An exuberant Jensen Huang, who gave a keynote and popped up on stage during various events at 's 2018 GPU Technology Conference (GTC) held in San Jose, Calif., last week, repeatedly made the point that due to extreme advances in technology, graphics processing units () are governed by a law of their own.

“There's a new law going on,” he says, “a supercharged law.”

Huang, who is CEO of Nvidia, didn't call it Huang's Law; I'm guessing he'll leave that to others. After all, Gordon Moore wasn't the one who gave Moore's Law its now-famous moniker. (Moore's Law—Moore himself called it an observation—refers to the regular doubling of the number of components per integrated circuit that drove a dramatic reduction in the cost of computing power.)
