Intel readies road map for billion-transistor processors
Intel Corp. expects its microprocessors to hit one-billion transistors by 2007, up from 42 million in the current Pentium 4, said Gerry Marcyk, director of components research at Intel's development facility. While process technology generally moves forward in two-year cycles - with shifts to 90-nanometer lithography design rules expected in 2003, to 65 nm in 2005, then to 45 nm in 2007 - packaging will have to hustle to keep up the pace, Marcyk said.
