New Line Of Microchips From intel, Another Line From MIT

Posted by Thomas Xavier Gilberto | Tuesday, July 15, 2008


Yesterday Intel unveiled its new line of processors, the Centrino 2, which it says will increase the battery life of computers while operating at faster speeds. Already major computer makers have announced models that will be released with the new chip. These include HP, Lenovo, Fujitsu and Sony. The new Intel chip will be launched officially next week. Intel is also planning to release its first quad core processors for laptops next month. For those of you who use windows vista, it may be worthwhile to note that forcing it to run on multiple cores speeds up your computer during and after boot up. Also, researchers at MIT may have succeeded in creating an entirely new line of microchips. Before this announcement analysts had predicted that this line would not be available untill after 2013. Using advanced nanotechnology research, MIT researchers have created lines about 25nanometers wide and separated by spaces as minute as 25NM. This is a far cry from the 65NM size on today's most advanced computer chips.
