Intel unveils a cutting-edge new technology for making transistors

Intel Corporation announced today (Thursday) that it is a new way to manufacture transistors in semiconductors. Here's what the company's chief engineer said: It could boost the performance of next-generation Intel processors by up to 20%.

This American company is one of the few in the world that develops and manufactures its own chips. After Intel announced last month that its next-generation manufacturing process (called the 7nm computing node) would be delayed, the manufacturing process became the focus of investor attention.

Analysts believe the delay could improve the performance of major competitors such as Taiwan's TSMC (TSMC) in making smaller, more energy-efficient chips. Since the late announcement, Intel's share price has decreased nearly 20%.

Today the company is trying to reverse the notion that the strange name given to each generation of algorithmic nodes is the most important thing for performance, and it has now announced a new method for making ultra-thin transistors called SuperFin transistors. Performance of future Intel processors should be improved with new materials. It is used to improve capacitors on the chip.

"It's 20%," Intel Chief Engineer Raja Kodori said in an interview with Reuters. This is the largest internal jump in our history and it is actually similar to Moore's Law knot. performance. ''

These claims cannot be tested in the real world until new Intel chips are released, but Tiger Lake notebook chips that will be released this fall will use them.

Kodori said that despite the new transistor technology, Intel has begun the process of designing chips. To make your chip plant or off-site chip plant easier to use, it requires building the best chip one or the other. He added, "Whatever we can enable us to deliver these products on time and with advanced performance, we will use them flexibly."
