With tri-gate and FinFETs the electrostatics are much better. Intel has several presentations on their web site showing the advantages they claim from tri-gate vs. bulk planar- which are generally accepted/acknowledged throughout the device community. Poke around here and see: http://newsroom.intel.com/docs/DOC-2032 Surprisingly (to me), I heard they will not present performance details at IEDM- I guess we can wait and hope for VLSI.

I understood that Intel is introducing FInFET at 22nm while the rest of the industry will wait for 14nm. WIll there be any advantage in terms of the performance that Intel will gain? The advantage of knowing the problems and getting to the solutions first is clear. Does anyone know the reason behind Intel's move to introduce FInFET at 22nm?

Mr. Clarke there is a portion of text missing after "Samsung could conceivably introduce a". There is a typo in "lead Intel has offer the rest of the industry". Offer should be over.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
