"Home prices driving tech workers overseas"
Intel's 3G Ivy Bridge processor, which offers improved graphics and computer processing speed, was developed in Israel and the US.
Intel Corporation (Nasdaq: INTC) today launched its 3G Ivy Bridge processor, which it developed in Israel and the US. The Ivy Bridge is a quad-core processor, which is designed to offer substantially improved graphics and computer processing speed. The processors will be embedded in PCs and all-in-one models that are now being shipped to stores.
Intel says that the Ivy Bridge is the first processor in the world produced by 22-nanometer technology based on 3D Tri-Gate transistors. Until now, transistors were 2D (planar) devices. Adding a third dimension enabled Intel to increase the number of transistors on a silicon chip, boosting performance per square millimeter of chip space.
"The Ivy Bridge processor is not only manufactured with new production technology, but also enables computers to run and respond faster," said Intel VP general manager Microprocessor and Chipset Development Group Rony Friedman.
The Ivy Bridge processor can run applications using less power but with higher performance with SSD computer storage drive technology. This gives computers faster response times thanks to smart response technology. Friedman adds, "Thanks to Ivy Bridge, users can send photographs faster from the camera to the computer, or upload video clips on to Facebook."
Intel also announced the launch of its Panther Point chipset, which supports the USB 3.0 port standard, which speeds up the sending of files and data. The standard also enables the transfer of media files (images and video clips) tens times faster than the USB 2.0 port standard, found in most current computers.
Friedman says that if a user can send a video clip to YouTube or to an iPad faster, thanks to the improved video file compression and decrypting capability. "Intel's Ivy Bridge has succeeded in demonstrating a 50-100% improvement compared with the Sandy Bridge processor in sending video files," he says.
Intel has been promoting its Ultrabook computers, which are less than 20 millimeters thick. They are known for opening quickly, weighing just 1.4 kilograms, and have a battery with a five-hour capacity.
