The leakage of Ivy bridge is higher than expected.
It is clear intel will need to fix leakage before it can make SOC for cell phone market.
This was arm CEO point (eetime yesterday) that intel is not ready for mobile 22, ships 32nm atom today, while arm is shipping 28nm.
So this GSS data point seems to suggest arm CEO might be right?
Perhaps SOI is want intel adopts to fix this issue and ship 22nm atom in 2013? Or SOI for 14nm?
The simulation has shown great results in terms of reducing leakage current and increasing the battery life. Lets wait for the its actual feasibility in the foundry processes there is no doubt about the acceptability of it if the foundries can handle the processes.
