Intel’s 3D Transistors


I apologize for a short blog about something in the near future… or under present development, but the video does a great job illustrating the basic concept of transistors and more specifically, Intel’s new 3D Transistor.  Enough of my blather.  Here’s their images and video:

Later this year, Intel expects to begin production of the new Tri-Gate processors, codenamed “Ivy Bridge.”
