World’s First Production 3-D Processor Chip Introduced by Intel

Intel has announced the world’s first 3-D microprocessor transistor for mass production.

It’s a major breakthrough for the semiconductor industry, which has been trying for years to get the microscopic semiconductor structures that make up computer chips into the third dimension.

“This transition to 3-D devices will help us continue Moore’s Law,” said Intel senior fellow Mark Bohr at the news conference Wednesday. “Clearly you can pack more things into a small space if you go vertical with 3-D.”

The Tri-Gate 3-D transistors will be put onto a new line of Intel chips. Dubbed “Ivy Bridge,” the chips are the world’s first mass-produced 22-nanometer microprocessors, which means they also contain the smallest semiconductors yet available on a production chip.
