3D transistor powered chip launched by Intel
Intel is launching its Ivy Bridge family of processors - the first to feature what it describes as a "3D transistor".
The American firm says the innovation allows it to offer more computational power while using less energy.
The initial release includes 13 quad-core processors, most of which will be targeted at desktop computers.
Further dual core processors, suitable for ultrabooks - thin laptops - will be announced "later this spring".
Intel and PC manufacturers expect the release to drive a wave of new sales.
"The momentum around the system design is pretty astonishing," Intel's PC business chief, Kirk Skaugen, who is spearheading the launch, told the BBC.
"There are more than 300 mobile products in development and more than 270 different desktops, many of which are all-in-one designs.
"This is the world's first 22 nanometre product and we'll be delivering about 20% more processor performance using 20% less average power."
