To cut processor size by more than a half.

Intel has laid out its future mobile chipset plans at MWC 2012, revealing it expects to have 14nm chips ready by 2014.

Intel CEO, Paul Otellini, also announced a new Medfield-powered smartphone; the Orange 'Santa Clara'.

The future 14nm chips will quadruple the performance of the current Medfield platform. Meanwhile the 22nm Atom chipset is due to hit the market in 2013.

At this rate, Intel is likely to surpass Moore's Law; which states that the number of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit doubles approximately every 18 months.

One month ago Intel unveiled its first Android smartphone reference design; boasting an Atom CPU, 8 hours 3G talk time, 14 days of battery life in standby mode, 6 hours of continuous video playback, HDMI supporting 1080p and an 8MP camera with 15fps capability.  

Otellini acknowledged the mobile market is moving at a much faster pace than the desktop market, attributing to Intel's accelerated roadmap.
