As far as I know, Intel is still using ordinary wafers, which implies a 4-terminal device. FD-SOI is 3-terminal and I guess that's coming sooner or later (SOITEC ftw!).

If you look at the gates and diffusion contacts together, it really does look like a 20-22 nm half-pitch that is double-patterned.

Why does UBM wants to do this tear down of the chip? Will this information be useful for any other manufacturers. Anyways I would like to read the complete report if I get a chance.

Intel has gone a way beyond the other are trying, that too with a new 3D connections technique, this will let then achieve the power saving standards compared to their immediate rivals. UBM's initiative lets the world know about what actually is happening inside the chips.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
