Intel's 22nm manufacturing process is 'exceeding expectations', talks of 5nm tech for 2015

Intel says that their 22nm manufacturing process is exceeding even their expectations

Intel's 22nm manufacturing process is shaping up much better than what the chipmaker said, according to talks at last week's IDF. Director of Process Technology, Mark Bohr, has said that the company's 22nm manufacturing process has exceeded their expectations.

Intel's Ivy Bridge line of processors bought forth the company's tri-gate transistor technology, which has been praised by technology enthusiasts alike. Bohr talked about the transistors' leakage and sub-threshold slope were more efficient than Intel had expected, and the technology will now see an extension of life into a few more generations.

 

We should hopefully see 14nm sometime next year, but 2015 looks like its the year for big amounts of change. Not only should we expect hoverboards (BTTF reference here) but we should see 10nm, 7nm and 5nm technologies researched. These technologies will see some amazing techniques used, as you can see in the picture above.

 

It's an exciting time for CPUs! Where's AMD?
