Intel manufacturing process announcement’s impact on business

3D transistor.pngIntel’s announcement that it will be moving a 22nm manufacturing process into production will have some significant implications to both power and cost in the near term.

 

Intel itself characterized its 3-D Tri-Gate technology as a "major technical breakthrough" that has significant advantages over the two-dimensional planar transistors that have powered innumerable devices in countless products from home appliances to cars over the past 50 years.

 

This technological advancement continues the advancements that were defined as “Moore’s Law” decades ago. “More than 6 million 22nm Tri-Gate transistors could fit in the period at the end of this sentence.” And that can provide unprecedented computing power to the edge of the enterprise as well as the data center itself, extending the abundance of computing.

 

Technologies like this enables the merger of the virtual and the physical world, allowing us to plan for a different future for the businesses we support.
