The article reports on the decision of Intel Corp. to use high-potassium dielectric layers and metal oxide gates in its microprocessor units (MPU). Director of process architecture and integration Mark Bohr said that the decision aims to create smaller MPUs which prevent power leakage and achieve the benefits of the Moore's Law. He also noted that the materials also increase transistor drive by 20%. The company decided not the follow the decision of IBM to manufacture Airgap MPU.
