Answer: Intel's 22nm SoC! Check out part II of Industry Analyst Dan Hutcheson's video interview with Intel Senior Fellow Mark Bohr for more on how Intel's Tri-Gate transistors are well-suited for meeting the needs of low power SoCs for everything from 100 watt servers to sub-1 watt cell phones. Yes, Intel designed those fins with rounded top corners on purpose. Yes, Intel's Tri-Gate transistors can do multiple Vts. And yes, they can do analog!

How does Intel approach innovation? By ALWAYS inventing something new. Mark Bohr, Senior Intel Fellow & Intel "Rock Star" was just interviewed by Industry Analyst Dan Hutcheson on this topic. The bottom line? We take ‘crazy’ ideas and turn them into reality a couple of decades later. View the video for highlights of how Intel overcame the challenges on the road to developing Intel's Tri-Gate transistors and how Moore's Law drives Intel innovation.

What kind of future do you want to live in? What kind of future should we avoid? Intel Futurist Brian David Johnson asks these questions of leading industry analysts and sci-fi authors. Check out their science fiction stories and podcasts about what our future may hold. Catch the Intel Developer Forum panel "Imagining the Future and Building It" with analysts Rob Enderle and Kathleen Maher (Sept 10th at 10:30am PDT). And take a look at blogs for more on what they envision for our future: "Intel's Tomorrow Project: Crafting a Better Future" by Rob Enderle, "Intel outsources the future" by Kathleen Maher, and "Prototyping the Distant Future" by Roger Kay.

Intel fabs are some of the most technically advanced manufacturing facilities in the world - as complex as the chips that get made inside them. Intel’s upcoming Fab 42, now under construction in Arizona, was recently toured by Chris Nuttall of The Financial Times (“Intel’s Chip Plans Bloom in the Desert”) and Dan Hutcheson of VLSI Research (“The Cooks Tour: Intel Fab 42”). See also our blog post, “What’s Behind the Products You Love?,” for interesting stats behind how massive an undertaking it is to build a new semiconductor fab.

Intel moved up to #16 (from #18 in 2010) in the 2011 Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 ranking, which highlights global supply chain leaders. Intel’s focus on Supply Chain Excellence include a continued focus on customer responsiveness and satisfaction; adapting the supply chain to support our adjacent businesses for an Intel competitive advantage; improving speed, cost, and inventories; and ensuring leadership performance in Environmental and Social Governance throughout our Supply Chain. See the “Supply Chain” section of Intel’s Corporate Responsibility Report for more.
