Gallery: Intel goes 3D with Tri-Gate transistors

Intel reveals what will power its next-generation of chips, the 3D Tri-Gate transistor.  Intel says the increased performance and reduced power consumption is the future of 22nm-based devices from handhelds to cloud-based servers.

Larry Dignan has more about the chip that Intel claims will keep Moore's Law rolling.

This image shows the vertical fins of Intel’s revolutionary tri-gate transistors passing through the gates.
