Intel To Build 22nm Trigate Processors for Netronome

The production will leverage Intel's 3D Trigate transistor technology that is more and more emerging as a cash cow for the company beyond its own product range. Netronome said that the transistors will "shatter system benchmarks for flow processor performance, power and cost in network and security applications."

The company also said that it will be able to take "full advantage of Intel's tools and proprietary modeling capabilities" and ensure that it has "uninterrupted product supply" as it can count of more than just one fab as production facility. Intel and Netronome did not release any numbers that would indicate production volume of network flow processors.

Netronome is the third foundry deal for Intel. Previously, Tabula and Achronix announced that their FPGAs would be manufactured by Intel in a 22 nm process. It appears that Nvidia would also be interested in having Intel produce its chips. Intel, however, declined and said that it has no intent helping its rivals.

    Looks like it's getting closer to buy some Intel stock.

    how is nVidia Intel's rival? i thought a GPU was separate from the CPU except for the integrated GPU which is basically just for everyday use proposes and not made for extreme gaming like nVidia's cards are.
    Also in that picture what version of QDR? and will it be able to go above 1333MHz for DDR3?
    now @ Prey Intel will most likely not go up anytime soon until this comes out and bees a hit in the market for whatever reason. still with QDR what market are they aiming for?

    Nvidia is Intel's rival in the smartphone/tablet SoC market. Tegra competes directly against Atom.

    Nvidia is not competing with Intel in the aftermarket gpu area. btu intel is smart, they know cloud computing and tablets/phones used as a one portal devices through things like the asus transformer series are going to keep coming, intel has thier mobile area where they are competing with Tegra 3, even if they only made Nvidia GPU and not thier Tegra chips the added benefit of the node shrink for Nvidia would likely result in more R&D money for Tegra which harms Intel. it is a smart call

    What's even more interesting is that investors outlook on intel stock is that it's high right now. They think that competition with Arm and the emerging markets such as tablet/mobile processors are not a strong place for Intel.

    I think the investors are wrong, it blows my mind how Apple shares can be so high while Intel and MS shares are priced equivalent to sliced bread. Whatever!

    Intel has hundreds streams of income and that's why I have lost my faith in amd. They didn't diversify their business and now they are screwed unless they find some strategic investor..

    Well, the only option left is to wait around for Intel to repeat the Netburst fiasco and short-sell their stocks.

    Apple competes with Samsung but Samsung has Apple manufacturing deals maybe Intel should take note.

    Nvidia runs circles around Intel when it comes to GPU knowledge, Intel would be smart to actually Nvidia's GPU's for them. Keep friends close but your enemies even closer.
