intel has managed to make 3d transitors,this means that moore's law, rumored to be coming to an end after 22nm will have many more years left in it, and yes, these are the chip used in IVY bridge

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS
Intel announces a major technical breakthrough and historic innovation in microprocessors: the world's first 3-D transistors, called Tri-Gate, in a production technology.
The transition to 3-D Tri-Gate transistors sustains the pace of technology advancement, fueling Moore's Law for years to come.
An unprecedented combination of performance improvement and power reduction to enable new innovations across a range of future 22nm-based devices from the smallest handhelds to powerful cloud-based servers.
Intel demonstrates a 22nm microprocessor – codenamed "Ivy Bridge" – that will be the first high-volume chip to use 3-D Tri-Gate transistors.

These have 37% higher performance and half the power consumption compared to current 32nm transistors

I'm sure that these are a significant improvement over the previous generation, but as with any claims made in a press release, take them with a pinch of salt.

Let's wait for reviews and benchmarks, before we get too excited about this.
