Adding on to this, Intel has also stated at a recently technology conference that they have solid plans to continue on beyond 45nm as well, into 32nm by 2009. The development of such CPUs is already under way, but considered to be very slow and intensive, with new technologies needing to be invented just to craft the tools to get the job done. In particular, a technology called EUV lithography is going to be employed for the purpose of using light to draw circuits, more precisely than can be done today, a necessity to further the advancement of CPUs.
