Intel has built its first fully functional chips using 65 nanometer fabrication technology. The first samples are simple SRAM chips, but Intel expects to manufacture processors using 65 nanometer process technology in 2005, which would nicely keep the company in line with Moore's Law.
All this as Intel appears to be struggling to produce chips using 90 nanometer fabrication tech.
Intel isn't discussing the specifics of its plans to deal with gate leakage in its 65 nanometer chips, but they do acknowledge that leakage gets worse with finer process technologies. A few weeks ago, Intel announced plans to use high-k gate insulators to combat power leakage, but Intel's new high-k dielectrics won't debut until the company shifts to 45 nanometer process tech.
