ok recently i heard that intel is going to release a 32nm chip which is going to be used instead of the 45nm, but how does a smaller die effect the speed? and how does a smaller die produce less heat can someone help me out.
First, 32nm is not the die size. It is related, but die size also has to do with the number of transistors. 32nm is the size of a single transistor. Smaller transistors can typically switch faster using less voltage, allowing an identical architecture CPU to run faster with less power. Often though, the manufacturer will make a similar size die on the smaller process, but using more transistors. This allows for more features and more cores while staying in roughly the same power envelope.
intel goes by tick tock right? tick is when they shrink the transistors size so they can add more in the same chip to gain more performance at lower volts/power, and tock for a new processor microarchitecture that is going from Pentium 4 to Core 2 to Core I serious.
