Intel's 22 nm Tri Gate Transistor Tech Makes it to Mobile SoCs

Intel's 22 nanometer tri-gate technology, which goes into building today's 3rd Generation Core desktop and notebook processors, and soon the entry-level Pentium and Celeron ones, will make it to mobile SoCs (systems on chips), which will drive battery life-sensitive devices such as smartphones and tablets. Intel announced that development of such chips is in progress, speaking at the 2012 International Electron Devices Meeting. The new 22 nm SoCs could feature anywhere between 20 to 65 percent higher performance than today's 32 nm low-power chips. The new chips will allow Intel to take on mid- and high-grade ARM SoCs. Intel didn't go into the specifics.
