Intel has announced its 22nm 3D Tri-Gate transistors, the world’s first on a production technology, and with the potential to create not only smaller chips for smartphones, tablets and other ultraportables, but to make more powerful servers and desktop PCs. The 3D Tri-Gate transistors will be first used in Intel Ivy Bridge processors, demonstrated today and set to be the first high-volume CPUs based on the new technology. Intel isn’t holding back on the hyperbole, saying Ivy Bridge will bring “an unprecedented combination of power savings and performance gains” – up to 37-percent more performance, in fact – and the company even managed to get Gordon E. Moore – who coined “ Moore’s Law ” – to speak up on how important the 22nm evolution is to tech

Apple will use Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs in its future laptops, no surprises there, but what’s interesting about these forthcoming machines is that some of them might rely solely on Intel’s chip for both general and graphical processing tasks. That’s the word from the usual « sources familiar with Apple’s plans, » who expect « MacBook models with screen sizes of 13 inches and below » to eschew the inclusion of a discrete GPU and ride their luck on the improved graphical performance of Intel’s upcoming do-it-all chip. There are currently no sub-13.3-inch MacBooks, so the suggestion of one is surely intriguing, but the major point here seems to be that NVIDIA’s being left out of the Apple party, because MacBook Pros are also predicted to switch up to AMD-provided graphics hardware. All these changes should be taking place with Apple’s next refresh, which is naturally expected at some point in the new year.
