Intel Announces its 3D Tri-Gate Transistor – Ivy Bridge

Intel announced its 3D Tri-Gate transistor that is going to be in its next generation processing platform code named “Ivy Bridge” based on 22-nm architecture. The design was originally demonstrated in 2002 but it is now entering production.
Mark Bohr, Intel Senior Fellow, Technology and Manufacturing Group Director, Process Architecture and Integration demonstrates the new Tri-Gate Transistor and how it improves Performance and Energy efficiency claiming More than 50% Power reduction (at constant performance) and 37% Performance increase at Low Voltage.

It is thought that this technology will allow more efficient control of the flow of electricity resulting in the benefits previously mentioned. Intel should be able to further push forward Moores Law that the transistor density of processors doubles every couple of years.

Moore’s law describes a long-term trend in the history of computing hardware. The number of transistors that can be placed inexpensively on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. This trend has continued for more than half a century and is expected to continue until 2015 or 2020 or later.

This technology can also penetrate into mobile devices including Netbooks, Slates and Mobile Devices and in turn can further push the boundaries of realisation of what can be done in terms of raw processing power and being able to better embed the device within constant data streams.
