    Seven of the world's leading chip makers are collaborating on chips which contain transistors with features just 32 billionths of a metre wide. IBM, Toshiba, AMD, Samsung, Chartered, Infineon and Freescale have formed the alliance to cut development costs.
    More transistors on a chip equals more processing power, but the development process is highly expensive.
