Santa Clara (California): Intel Corp., the world's largest chipmaker, has announced it has achieved breakthroughs in transistor design that could be the greatest advances in the field in last 40 years.

The new chips, which Intel expects to deliver to the market by the second half of the year, are predicted to drastically increase computing power with microprocessors that will be cheaper and more energy efficient.

The new technology could make the biggest impact in small, consumer devices such as cellular telephones, which could gain processing power more typical of desktop computers.

Intel co-founder Gordon Moore called it "the biggest change in transistor technology since ... the late 1960s."

Moore is known for postulating the so-called Moore's Law, a high-tech industry axiom that computing power doubles every two years, a pattern that Intel now expects to continue for the foreseeable future.
