New Intel Design to Cut Power Leakage on Chips

Intel Corp. said on Wednesday it has found a breakthrough way to insulate transistors that could solve one of the semiconductor industry’s most fundamental problems: how to make computer chips ever-smaller while preventing them from losing power and throwing off heat. “As semiconductor manufacturers design microprocessors packed more densely with transistors, those components, which are the fundamental building blocks of computer chips, are also prone to leak electrical current, much like a dripping faucet.”
