TSMC starts 7nm mobile processor testing
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 20, 2016, 3:47 AM
Building on our longstanding FinFET collaboration with Synopsys, this TSMC certification signifies that the tools from the Galaxy Design Platform are now ready for early engagements at 7nm." This milestone jibes with the foundry's promises to begin risk production in the second half of 2017.According to Suk Lee, TSMC's senior director of design infrastructure marketing: "
Samsung won't be far behind, but they'd better focus on the 10nm process first, as Snapdragon 830 may be late in the game if Samsung snubs its production in favor of its own chipsets. Both the 10nm and 7nm nodes are expected to bring the usual drastic reduction in chipset power draw with the concurrent boost in performance, so we can't wait for the first 10nm benchmarks to hit the tape and gauge what next year's flagships will bring to the table.

Dumb question. What's below 1 nanometer?

The race to 1nm begins. Samsung will reach it first, apple will make it better somehow.
