Intel Intel has just announced its new line of processors, called Ivy Bridge, which uses a new type of transistor to reach the 22nm production process as well as maintain Moore's Law. They call it the 3D transistor, and in all honesty, this stuff goes way over my head. Even the incredibly cheesy n00b-video from Intel doesn't really make any lightbulbs appear in my head. So...

"I think, AMD will start manufacturing ARM processors or otherwise they should come up with less than 22nm transitors to survive."

I wouldn't say that. They don't need to compete in that space, though it would likely be in their best interest.

Example: I have a microwave. The company that makes it has not made a portable hand held microwave and yet they are still surviving. (it's not a great direct comparison, as the market isn't heading towards "hand help microwaves" but still).

AMD will adapt, they always do ;)
