Intel goes to 45nm process Page: 1
Intel are currently moving to 65nm process, but by 2007 they will be moving this forward. By eventually transitioning to 45nm, Intel will get more of the same. The end of 2007 will see the introduction of the first mass market 45nm chips. In the meantime, we're looking at Conroe as the next-generation desktop chip, produced on the 65nm process. This new process 30% reduction in power, 20% increase in switching speed and means double the transistor count on the processor. This is good news - Intel are hotting up the race big time! Will AMD be able to keep up?
