    Silicon on insulator technology (SOI) refers to the use of a layered silicon-insulator-silicon substrate in place of conventional silicon substrates in semiconductor manufacturing, especially microelectronics, to reduce parasitic device capacitance and thereby improving performance.

    Not only. It also reduces leakage current, which improves efficiency, reduces heat and allows faster clocks as a result.

    22nm SOI = Ivy Bridge, right? If so, wasn't this known like ages ago? After that there will be Rockwell at 16nm and so on.
