A Peek Into the Future of Intel Processors
Intel is on a seemingly unstoppable march toward manufacturing unimaginably small chip geometries of 15 nanometers and beyond. Generally, the smaller the chip geometries--from 45 nanometers to 32 nanometers, for example--the better the performance and the lower the relative power consumption. And to achieve smaller geometries, the chip giant announced today . I talked today with Brian Krzanich, a senior vice president and general manager for manufacturing and supply chain at Intel, about the future of Intel manufacturing and, consequently, the future of its processors.
