The .. announcement is new evidence that the chip maker is maintaining the pace of Moore’s Law, the technology axiom that states that the number of transistors on a chip doubles roughly every two years, giving rise to a constant escalation of computing power at lower costs.

Intel has made a significant change in the manufacturing of chips, using new metallic alloys in the insulation itself and in adjacent components that will reduce current leakage and provide better heat insulation. Cooler chips, less power, faster. Production is scheduled for the second half of this year. And, not to be outdone, IBM has followed up with similar news, with a rollout in 2008.

There is an article here [nytimes.com] at NYT.
