Intel Discloses Newest Microarchitecture and 14 Nanometer Manufacturing Process Technical Details
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Intel (News - Alert) today disclosed details of its newest microarchitecture that is
optimized with Intel's industry-leading 14nm manufacturing process.
Together these technologies will provide high-performance and low-power
capabilities to serve a broad array of computing needs and products from
the infrastructure of cloud computing and the Internet of Things to
personal and mobile computing.

Intel disclosed details of the microarchitecture of the Intel® Core™ M
processor, the first product to be manufactured using 14nm.
The combination of the new microarchitecture and manufacturing process
will usher in a wave of innovation in new form factors, experiences
and systems that are thinner and run silent and cool.
Intel architects and chip designers have achieved greater than two
times reduction in the thermal design point when compared to a
previous generation of processor while providing similar performance
and improved battery life.
The new microarchitecture was optimized to take advantage of the new
capabilities of the 14nm manufacturing process.
Intel has delivered the world's first 14nm technology in volume
production. It uses second-generation Tri-gate (FinFET)�transistors
with industry-leading performance, power, density and cost per
Intel's 14nm technology will be sed to manufacture a wide range of
high-performance to low-power products including servers, personal
computing devices and Internet of Things.
The first systems based on the Intel® Core™ M processor will be on
shelves for the holiday selling season followed by broader OEM
availability in the first half of 2015.
Additional products based on the Broadwell microarchitecture and 14nm
process technology will be introduced in the coming months.

"Intel's integrated model - the combination of our design expertise with
the best manufacturing process - makes it possible to deliver better
performance and lower power to our customers and to consumers," said
Rani Borkar, Intel vice president and general manager of product
development. "This new microarchitecture is more than a remarkable
technical achievement. It is a demonstration of the importance of our
outside-in design philosophy that matches our design to customer
"Intel's 14 nanometer technology uses second-generation Tri-gate
transistors to deliver industry-leading performance, power, density and
cost per transistor," said Mark Bohr, Intel senior fellow, Technology
and Manufacturing Group, and director, Process Architecture and
Integration. "Intel's investments and commitment to Moore's law is at
the heart of what our teams have been able to accomplish with this new
