Samsung will soon start producing second generation 10nm chips
The race for mobile chips continues with full power, and the next step towards for the optimizing this small component, which lies at the heart of every smartphone, will be made by Samsung.
The company announced that it is ready to start production of the second-generation 10nm process chips and will even increase the factory capacity.
The latest processors at the moment the Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 are built on a 10nm LPE (Low Power Early) process and the second generation will be called 10nm LPP (Low Power Plus).
If all of this sounds too technical, the new chips will actually allow 10% increase in performance while at the same time energy consumption will drop by 15%.
Users will notice it even if the changes don’t seams to look so big. For comparison, the Snapdragon 820 and 821 were developed at a 14nm LPP process, but the newer model was working at a higher rate.
To meet long-term demand for the 10nm process for a wide range of customers, Samsung has started installing production equipment at its newest S3-line in Hwaseong, Korea. The S3-line is expected to be ready for production by the fourth quarter of this year.
“With our successful 10LPE production experience, we have commenced production of the 10LPP to maintain our leadership in the advanced-node foundry market,” said Ryan Lee, Vice President of Foundry Marketing at Samsung Electronics.
“10LPP will be one of our key process offerings for high performance mobile, computing and network applications, and Samsung will continue to offer the most advanced logic process technology.” Source Samsung.http://gizbrain.com/2017/04/21/samsung-producing-second-generation-10nm-chips/https://i0.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Soc-ARM-cpu.jpg?fit=940%2C540https://i0.wp.com/gizbrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Soc-ARM-cpu.jpg?fit=190%2C150SAMSUNGTECH NEWScpu,processor,Samsung,smartphoneThe race for mobile chips continues with full power, and the next step towards for the optimizing this small component, which lies at the heart of every smartphone, will be made by Samsung.
