Intel’s new fab

Until now Moore’s law could be satisfied by using same old materials for making the transistor : silicon.

Well now things changed: transistors are becoming metallic.
The gates will be made from a metal named Hafnium ( a High-K dielectric).

This will allow reduction of power with 80% or increase in speed of up to 40%.

The new 45 nm chips will be available this year.
