Samsung begins mass producing their first 10nm SoC

 
Samsung has begun mass producing their first 10nm FinFET SoC, offering a 30% increases in area efficiency, 27% more performance and 40% lower power consumption than 14nm. 
 
This will be the industries first 10nm FinFET product for the mass market, showcasing Samsung's leadership in modern process technology. This SoC will be available in digital devices in early 2017, making it the first 10nm SoC to hit the market. 
 
 
 

   The industry's first mass production of 10 nm FinFET technology demonstrates our leadership in advanced process technology," said Jong Shik Yoon, Executive Vice President, Head of Foundry Business at Samsung Electronics. "We will continue our efforts to innovate scaling technologies and provide differentiated total solutions to our customers.

Samsung's initial 10nm products will be made using their 10nm LPE (Low Power Early) process, with a second generation 10nm LPP (Low Power Plus) process planned to become available in the second half of 2017. 10nm LPP will give a performance boost over 10nm LPE by fine tuning Samsung's 10nm process.

They really need to reclassify there NM naming scheme. These aren't true 10nm chips, it's more akin to 12nm and at the same time, still behind Intel's 14nm.

Or I guess on the other hand Intel needs to rename there NM classification to make it seem they are still leading the industry instead of Samsung(which intel still is). Even if they hit 7nm, Intels 10nm will still be more advanced, simply because of transistor density/sq is as much as 40% higher, offering the same benefits at a smaller node at a reduced price(well, Intel still charge an arm and a leg, but you know what I mean)Quote

Come on, cut them some slack. They did the right thing by recalling everything and going out of pocket..

Its getting old. Not like they did it on purpose. One has to wonder how this managed to pass QA in the first place though.Quote
