65-nm Intel CPUs due in late '05
Moore's Law is alive and kicking at Intel Corp., which on Monday (Aug. 30) announced plans for volume production of its 65-nanometer processors. Now that Intel has successfully crossed over to 90-nm manufacturing, it expects to begin volume manufacturing of 65-nm processors in late 2005, with transistors that provide a 1.4x increase in raw frequency compared with the 90-nm technology. At a time when some experts predict a slow death for the advantages of scaling, Intel is marching along to a two-year tempo. Just as the company's fabs, as of this quarter, now make more processors on its 90-nm process than on the 130-nm platform, Intel expects the crossover to 65 nm will come two years from now, in the third quarter of 2006. And scaling continues to double the number of available transistors per area, with an amazing 10 million of the 65-nm transistors in a single square millimeter of silicon.
