Intel CEO Speaks at Investors Meeting Calling Android “Chaos” and Apple “Order” » INTELCEOPAULOTELLINI
Recognizing the 60th anniversary of the transistor – a key component in a microprocessor – Intel President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini displays the projected size of todayâs IntelÂ® 45nm processors if the transistors were identical to those in Intelâs first product in 1971. Intelâs innovations in transistor design ensure PCs and mobile devices are smaller, faster and more energy-efficient than ever.
While the Intel 4004 processor in 1971 housed some 2,300 transistors, our recently introduced IntelÂ® 45nm Coreâ¢ 2 Extreme processor holds more than 820 million transistors.
