The article provides information on the microprocessors manufactured by Intel Corp. using its 45-nm Penryn process. The hafnium-based Hi-K transistor formula is meant to decrease electricity leaks, Intel noted. In addition to aiming to increase computer performance and saving energy use, the 16 new processors are lead-free, RoHS-compliant and will be halogen-free in 2008.
