back to article IBM and pals to start baking 28nm chips

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. Alliance members include IBM, Singapore's Chartered, the recently-spun-off-from-AMD Globalfoundries, Germany's Infineon, Samsung, and …

The start of the end

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...

than silicon.

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.
