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!).

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.
