In the race to build a faster computer chip, there is literally nowhere to go but up: Today's chip surfaces are packed with the tiniest electronic switches the laws of physics allow, but Intel Corp. says it is blowing past those limits with a breakthrough, three-dimensional transistor design it revealed May 4.

Analysts call it one of the most significant developments in silicon transistor design since the integrated circuit was...
