Hafnium-based Intel® 45nm Process Technology
Two words: relentless innovation. Using dramatically new materials including hafnium-basedAnd what is hafnium? Hafnium (Hf) is a chemical elemIt’s silver-gray in color, highly ducent on the periodic table. tile, corrosion resistant, and is chemically most similar to zirconium. Intel engineers discovered that introducing hafnium into silicon chips helps reduce electrical leakage enabling smaller, more energy-efficient and performance-packed processors. circuitry, Intel® 45nm high-k metal gate silicon technology helps to dramatically increase processor energy efficiency, thus equating to more powerful computing experiences and greater flexibility of design.
With this breakthrough transistor technology, Intel is manufacturing serious advantage into every hafnium-based Intel® 45nm high-k chip. These revolutionary notebook and desktop processors enable greater performance in gaming, multimedia, and multitasking—at work, at home, or on the go.
