Well, hello, Prometheus: ARM roadmap leak hints at 10nm flagship chipsets
With Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 still rocking it at 20nm, and the bleeding edge Exynos 7420 in Galaxy S6 shrunk at the record for a mobile 14nm, a leaked ARM roadmap comes to show that's not all we can expect from flagship chipsets in the near future. As you can see in the chart above, ARM is prepping a Prometheus architecture that will be as powerful, as it will be power-sipping, and will be hammered out with a breathtaking 10nm production process.
The speculated timeframe seems to infer that we could see such SoCs as soon as the second half of next year, and a previous rumor claimed that it might be Samsung that will be at the forefront of their production, going from 14nm straight to the 10nm goodness. Rumor has it that Qualcomm has already tasked Samsung with the making of its next big thing - Snapdragon 820 - which means 14nm will be the flagship norm in the second half of the year, and now we can see that 10nm is on the horizon as well. Good times.
