Intel unveiled its next generation of microprocessor technology code named Ivy Bridge On Wednesday. The Ivy Bridge chips will use a 22-nanometer manufacturing process which packs transistors more densely than the current 32-nanometer system. The company said it would use new Tri-Gate "3D" transistors, which will help the efficiency of power consumption. "Intel's scientists and engineers have once again reinvented the transistor, this time utilizing the third dimension," Intel President and...

The fast pace of growing computing power could be sustained for many years to come thanks to new research from the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) that is applying advanced techniques to magnetic semiconductors. Moore's Law observed that the density of transistors on an integrated circuit doubles every two years. Components have shrunk over time to achieve this, but experts believed that when the characteristic transistor size reduces below ~ 20 nm, heating and quantum effects will...

By Saswato R. Das A small electronic component that has caused one of most dramatic outpourings of technological progress in human history turned 50 last week. The integrated circuit, better known as the semiconductor chip, has unleashed change comparable to the Industrial Revolution by making the computer revolution and the digital age possible. Today there are far more chips on earth than people. All around us, millions of them are tirelessly at work - in computers, phones,...

By Anonymous The rhythm of Moore's Law pushes computer makers to change, to get smaller, and to get faster about every two years. All the more so for Intel since that "Moore" is company cofounder Gordon Moore. The Silicon Valley company, supplier of the electronic brains in most computers, will reach nearly $40 billion in revenue this year. Therefore, Intel has a lot of money to plow into new products and other initiatives. The Wall Street Journal reported the company just introduced...
