Intel claims plug for leaky chips
A tiny new transistor that leaks very little current has been developed, says the world's largest computer chip maker. What is more, Intel says the device will take the leap from the lab to the manufacturing plant. The new architecture enables the company to build reliable transistors just 45 nanometres in size. These are intended to use in a future generation of powerful computer chips, each of which will pack in five billion transistors.
