IBM and AMD first at 22 nm, challenge Intelís manufacturing lead
IBM and its chip development partners made a stunning announcement today, apparently beating Intel in the successful production of the first functional 22 nm SRAM cell. 22 nm processors are still three years out in the future, but IBMís news is a good sign that chip manufacturer will be able to easily scale to this new level by the end of 2011. It appears that, for the first time in several decades, Intel may have to put some extra time into its research and development efforts to make sure it can keep its manufacturing lead at 22 nm and beyond.

Bigger question... will there still be an AMD when they finally USE 22nm CPUs?
AMD has yet to launch 45nm. Forget 22nm, when will AMD launch 32nm?
A little digging, apparently AMD's New York fab is being built at 32nm. So perhaps not until AMD completes construction of their new fab in 2010 / 2011. So 22nm won't be seen from AMD until 6+ years from now. Will they still be around?
