Well the general 45->32->22->15 evolution's been kicked around for a while now, so I fail to see this as news :S
True, but it's good to see it.
The interesting thing for me is that the 11nm-15nm transistors are the wall that Moore's law will run up against. How are they going to get past it?
I think quantum and carbon based systems are the two biggest contenders right now, but we're looking at 15-20 years until the limits of 15nm SOI become felt, so there nay be other tech out there that fills the bill.
That's like saying: "BREAKING NEWS!!! Samsung plan to build TVs with higher resolutions... in the future."
There won't be a 32 for mainstream parts. Only E-series.
Intel will keep the current process generation until the end of next year, so the original Atom core will have had a four year lifespan! 22nm should see a considerable power drop vs 45.
The news is that Intel intended to greatly expand the Atom core across many products - CE mostly - so instead of future products containing ARM chips like they do now, Intel wants you to be using IA-cored products in MP3 players, Blu-ray, TVs, White goods?
well here come the picometre measurements.....not far now .
i don't want Intel's inefficient CPU instruction set in my MP3 player/TV.
I'm disappointed that Intel won't be releasing 15nm chips in the 1990s, I want my 1993 Toshiba Satellite to run faster...
I thought 8nm was the absolute minimum...
A lot of people thought XXXnm was the absolute minimum
Meh, without a timeframe, this is no news. Sure, at some point in the future, they'll need to get smaller. Wow, i mean, just wow.
In the future TV's will be able to play crysis!!
I think we're looking at 7 years min before 15nm cores become mainstream
In the future, PCs will be able to play Crysis!
For some reason, I thought that the spacing of crystalline silicon atoms was in nm. Not so. With the atomic radius measured in hundreds of pm, we have some way to go before hitting physical limits. But in any case, I rather suspect that they'll start stacking chips together to make CPU cubes before long. If they can figure out how to cool it.
well they have to do something because when Zucat hits the market it will take over the netbook and entry level laptop market. Also if Intel does this shrink then they could go completely passively cooled as they mentioned in some of their videos.
I love Atoms, I've got a black one and take it round Cadwell Park on Track Days..it goes like hell.
Ah, no. That's 45 on the Nonce Meter scale. Easy mistake to make.
