Intel Atom to Get 3D Transistors

by Reads (3,432)

Remember those 3D transistors we talked about just a few days ago?  As it turns out, Intel’s new pride and joy are going to show up in even their lowest-end processors.  Codenamed “Silvermont”, the future of Atom processors will be built upon a 22nm manufacturing process. As part of the tech shrinkage, Intel will be able to pack both more processing power as well as graphics capability onto a single die.


While Atom seemed to take the world by storm upon its introduction just a few short years ago, Intel hasn’t done much to update the platform in the intervening period. Since then, a number of solid competitors have entered the space, including AMD’s new low-end Fusion entry and options from ARM powerhouses like NVIDIA, Samsung and others.
