After Monday’s (April 23) launch of Intel’s newest line of processors, named Ivy Bridge, Moore’ prediction is still looking sound. The chips are the first to become available from any company with features as small as 22 nanometers (the finest details on today’ chips are 32 nanometers), allowing transistors to be smaller and packed more densely. Ivy Bridge chips offer 37 percent more processing speed than the previous generation of chips, and can match their performance while using just half the energy.
