Nanotech to cut chip transistor sizes
By 2010, one billion PCs and 2.5 billion handheld devices as powerful as Pentium 4 systems will be linked in a global computing network, according to Intel's president and chief operating officer, Paul Otellini. In his opening address to the Intel Developer Forum in San Jose, Otellini predicted that processor transistors would get even thinner, and announced that Intel was planning to build graphics capabilities directly onto the chip to reduce costs and increase performance of low-end PCs.
