Intel has recently demonstrated high-k + metal gate transistor breakthroughs on 45nm microprocessors and while Legit Reviews didn't get to see it in person we have been in contact with Intel following the developments that took place this week in California. If you're interested in Intel's 45nm Penryn family of processors and what the future holds for Intel this is a must read!
"Intel has been able to nail down their high-k + metal gate transistor technology and the next generation dual-core and quad-core processors will have the new transistors. The first processor family to use this new technology will be Penryn, which is the next generation Intel Core 2 processor. Thanks to the high-k + metal gate technology the 45nm part will benefit from clock rate improvements..."
