"Texas Instruments Inc. (NYSE:TXN - news) said on Monday a new manufacturing process will double the number of chips it produces on each silicon wafer, boosting processing speed, cutting power consumption, and helping the company compete with rival Intel Corp. (Nasdaq:INTC - news)

TI, the biggest supplier of chips for mobile phones, said the 45-nanometer chip-making process could lift device speeds by around 30 percent and cut power consumption by 40 percent.

The process will also allow wireless users to run more simultaneous applications, such as playing games with 3-D graphics while running video conferences or receiving e-mail in the background, the company said."
