In addition to introducing Tri-Gate 3D transistors, Intel today launched 22nm based Ivy Bridge microprocessor that will be the first high-volume chip to use 3-D Tri-Gate transistors.
The world’s first 22nm microprocessor is designed for use in laptops, servers and desktops. Intel reports that Ivy Bridge-based Intel Core family processors will be the first high-volume chips to use 3-D Tri-Gate transistors.
Ivy Bridge support PCI Express 3.0 and the graphics processor will have support for DirectX 11 and OpenCL 1.1.
Ivy Bridge is slated for high-volume production readiness by the end of this year.
