The march toward faster, more power-efficient microprocessors took another step Thursday when the IBM Technology Alliance announced the joint development of 28 nanometer process technology.

Presumably you mean 'silicon'
Silicone is the stuff they put in fake tits ...
What a load of.....
'The Alliance, however, doesn't use the term "high-k/metal gate".....'
So, what does "HKMG" stand for then?
I'd prefer that we didn't use the term "The Alliance" and instead used "GOPW" (Group Of Pretentious Wankers).
Let's see the results!
Good for IBM! Good for the industry!
I am rather curious how fast newer POWER chips will run with the new architecture... or at least what the throughput will be!
Making Silicone FAR more important...
Paris looks great without Silicone.
Different Time Lines
Intel already has 32 nm in limited production for introduction later this year and are starting to test 22 nm parts. The implication that IBM and partners are ahead is just plain wrong.
