32 and 22 nm at Intel Developer Forum

1 billion+ transistors, that is what is possible with the newer 32nm fabrication process showcased at the Intel Developer Forum. ‘Westmere’ products based on 32nm are expected by this year.

There was also a showcase of 22nm SRAM fabricated chip. Intel is also working with 32nm for Atom processors to reduce the power requirements to the level of ARM processors.

32 nm Arrandale can run encryptions accelerated by hardware AES instructions. This enables faster encryption without the overheads of software processing of encryption instructions.

I wish they make the execution speed of Atom processor equal to about desktop Core2 series processor.
