What is a good source for data relevant to studying Moore's Law in computer hardware? I am interested in both the original formulation in terms of transistor count as well as some related metrics such as RAM or clock speed. The Wikipedia article on transistor count seems somewhat incomplete and the data that they discuss seems to be spread over multiple sources.

    Not an answer, but maybe look at archive.org's older versions of sites that sell computer hardware to see what was top of the line back then. If you can get a hold of computer hardware catalogs (eg, at a library), that would be another source re the "best" consumer available CPU at the time. – Barry Carter Feb 5 '18 at 18:47
