It’ll be interesting to see what level of impact does this innovative transistor technology called 3D Tri-gate will have on Virtualization(KVM based). Apparently, the upcoming processors will be nearly 40% more faster than the current generation processors and more interestingly, consumes 50% less power.
Technical details are here, from Intel’s Silicon Architecture section. They also note some fun facts to visualize how small is 22nm.
Also, a hardware based DRNG(Digital Random Number Generation) technology which can produce quality random numbers at a very high rate is in store(which will assist in making Cryptographic operations more stronger). Technical details are here
