Intel leans hard on advanced chip packaging technologies in battle for computing supremacy

We tend to focus on the latest and greatest technology nodes because they’re used to manufacture the densest, fastest, most power-efficient processors. But as we were reminded during Intel’s recent Architecture Day 2020, a range of transistor designs is needed to build heterogeneous systems.

“No single transistor is optimal across all design points,” said chief architect Raja Koduri. “The transistor we need for a performance desktop CPU, to hit super-high frequencies, is very different from the transistor we need for high-performance integrated GPUs.”
