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.
