    Intel lifts wraps on 3D transistor, new chip


    SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Intel Corp. on Wednesday introduced a three-dimensional transistor that the company said would also allow chips to operate with less power while maintaining high performance.

    Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) said the company is embracing the new chip technology as it shifts to a 22-nanometer manufacturing technology.

    The new transistor — called Tri-Gate — will be put to use in high-volume manufacturing in a new chip product code-named “Ivy Bridge.”

    Intel said the 22-nanometer 3-D Tri-Gate transistors “provide up to 37% performance increase at low voltage” compared with the company’s 32-nanometer planar transistors.

    The technology is “ideal for use in small handheld devices, which operate using less energy to ‘switch’ back and forth,” according to the company.
