die shrink

Reducing the size of the elements on a chip without changing its fundamental circuit design. In a die shrink, the internal design of the transistor may or may not be the same. For example, when the Intel Sandy Bridge microarchitecture was superseded by Ivy Bridge, the circuit design remained the same, but the transistors were entirely different. See half node and microarchitecture.
