Intel has unveiled its next generation of microprocessor technology, code named Ivy Bridge.
The upcoming chips will be the first to use a 22 nanometre manufacturing process, which packs transistors more densely than the current 32nm system.
Intel said it would also be using new Tri-Gate "3D" transistors, which are less power hungry.
Rival chip manufacturers including AMD and IBM are understood to be planning similar designs.
