TSMC CEO confirms innovative 16nm mobile processor technology on track for year-end
TSMC's CEO Morris Chang confirmed at an investor conference today that the foundry is already at the risk production stage of 20nm chips since Q1 of 2013.

Not only that, but the same stage is coming for the innovative 16nm FinFET chips before the year has rolled over, meaning processors like ARM's Cortex A-57 will be at arm's reach, pun intended, sooner that imagined. 

This technology was hinted for use at a 'breakthrough' Apple product further down the road, and is sure to bring amazing processor performance at record low power envelopes. Intel better step up its mobile efforts indeed.
