Intel launches 3D enabled Ivy Bridge chips; raises bar for rivals
Added On:4/25/2012 9:26:00 AM
Promising more power and better efficiency, the chip maker Intel has launched a range of new processors built with '3D transistors'. If reports are to be believed, the new generation Intel chips, code-named “Ivy Bridge”, are the first to be made with a “3-D” structure.
Intel has claimed that the new chips are the world’s first 22-nanometre product which will deliver nearly 20 percent more processor performance, that too by using 20 percent less average power.
Sources further revealed that Ivy Bridge platform will incorporate new technology allowing a 3-D transistor structure known as ‘Tri-Gate’ that will boost the efficiency of gadgets.
Industry experts added, the new chips has brought Intel into the realm of 22-nanometer processing, a big step down from the 32-nm build process.
It is worth noticing, Intel’s arch rival AMD is still using 32-nm build process. So, it is believed, the new technology is being targeted at ARM Holdings. ARM chip technology holds a dominant share in tablet arena as it comes packed in devices like Apple's iPad and Samsung tablets.
Sources revealed that Intel is claiming this technology to be a path breaking achievement as it moves away from the flat circuitry to a three-dimensional model.
Intel most likely will use the technology to build PC and server chips later this year.
