Intel and IBM Detail New 22nm Technology
Representatives from Intel and IBM presented papers detailing new 22nm technology at the International Electron Devices Meeting in San Francisco yesterday. IBM is using a 3D process to create server processors with performance that is 25-35% greater than current 32nm technology. IBM plans to further discuss the 3D technology on Wednesday. Intel has created several variations to its 22nm process for system on a chip units. This offers performance improvement up to 65% over Intel's 32nm planar process. The process will also offer increased performance in fast interface devices such as Ethernet and HDMI.
