According to CNET, Intel is designing a 22 nanometer Atom chip with its new 3D transistors. The chip is codenamed Silvermont and is touted to boost performance by 37% while reducing power consumption by 50% over current 32nm chips. While CNET was unable to get hard numbers to back up the new Atom chip, I can assure that it will be a vast upgrade to current chips. These new atom chips will most likely be the driving force in future tablets, netbooks, and possibly smaller notebooks (those smaller than 12 inches).
