22-nm-tri-gate is Ivy-Bridge

The 22-nm process is called 1270 and it is starting to ramp. First wafers will come out of D1D in Oregon and then volume production will start at F32 in Arizona in the latter half of this year, "Intel"
Intel is targeting the first 22-nm product in the desktop/server space, but Freedman believes the chip giant should initially look at another segment . Why not the mobile first? he asked.
''The fact that x86 products will have first access to 3-D transistor gate technology will likely help offset the architecture handicap of x86 versus ARM in optimizing low-power.
We do not view this as game changing, but do see it as heating up the x86 versus ARM battle,'' Freedman said. http://www.electronics-eetimes.com/en/intel-tips-22-nm-tri-gate-but-mobile-is-mia.html?cmp_id=7&news_id=222907222&vID=654
