Chip Manufacturing Race Between Intel, ARM Tightening

GlobalFoundries is giving Intel a run for its money in the chip manufacturing business. GlobalFoundries announced advances in technology that would put the company on an even manufacturing par with Intel by 2014.

By 2014, GlobalFoundries also hopes to implement 3D transistors, which could deliver a 40 percent to 60 percent boost to battery life on devices compared to chips based on the 20-nm process, which will have 2D transistors and be made in 2013
