Samsung Demoes First 10nm Chip

 

Samsung has demoed it's first 10nm FinFET chip, surprisingly ahead of Intel. We know that Intel is currently using their 14nm process for Broadwell CPU and Samsung are soon to release their Galaxy S6 with their 14nm Exynos SoC. This means that currently Samsung and Intel are the leaders of process tech right now, with Global Foundries working on their 14nm node and TSMC working on their 16nm node. All the nodes mentioned above will be using FinFET transistors.

  

Samsung Demoes First 10nm Chip  

Samsung have said that their upcoming 10nm FinFET node, which is expected to be making it's first chips sometime in 2016 (but potentially 2017), will be vital for the evolution of the internet of things and plans on seeing their process tech from places like data centres down to mobile phones. Samsung also were talking about 10nm DRAM and 3D vNAND.

Intel plan on producing products on their 10nm node sometime in 2016 as well, so now is Samsung's opportunity to finally be able to take away Intel's traditional advantage in process tech.

I'm wondering if Intel or Samsung is experimenting with graphene chips (I know IBM is). We are kind of slowly running out of room for silicone based stuff. I can't remember where I read that silicone can go down to 4nm? This graphic shows only 5nm:

Intel said they were going to drop Silicone when they move to 7nm (more detail here).Quote

well the real question is how it compares to intel's own 14nm and 10nm processes, since the 14nm from samsung are not comparable with what intel call 14nm, i mean its more like a 20nm process than 14nm in actual component sizes, also the fact that they say its done doesnt mean anything, they sad they have 14nm since 2014 and we still haven't seen any products of low power version, not to mention high power ones, all in all this is just marketing and at least another 2 years awayQuote
