Intel Corp. rolled out new computer chips Thursday that highlight the company’s lead over Advanced Micro Devices Inc. in its ability to shrink the circuitry inside its processors.

Intel’s new Core chips, unveiled at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, are the company’s first to feature tiny parts whose average width is 32 nanometers.

32 nanometers chips will better performance and lower computer prices. Chip makers benefit from the ability to add more features and cut costs.

AMD’s 32-nanometer chips won’t appear in personal computers until 2011. It has argued that circuitry size isn’t as important as performance and graphics.
