TI to double chip capacity with 45nm

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 14 2006 @ 13:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Texas Instruments says the 45nm chip making process will double the number of chips produces on each silicon wafer, bumping processing speed and cutting power consumption ahead of Intel.
TI, the biggest supplier of chips for mobile phones, said the 45-nanometer chip-making process could lift device speeds by around 30 percent and cut power consumption by 40 percent.

The process will also allow wireless users to run more simultaneous applications, such as playing games with 3-D graphics while running video conferences or receiving e-mail in the background, the company said.
