Samsung announces that their 10nm LPP process is now production ready

 
Samsung has today announced that their 10nm LPP (Low Power Plus) FinFET process is now production ready, offering a 10% performance boost or 15% lower power consumption than their 10nm LPE (Low Power Early) process.
 
This new node has been qualified and is now ready for production, opening up the node to a wide range of customers. Ryan Lee, Vice President of Foundry Marketing at Samsung Electronics, states that this node will be best suited to mobile markets, with the 10nm LPE process already being used to create the SoCs used in Samsung’s new S8 smartphones. 
 
The company has also announced that they are installing production equipment in their S3-line in Hwaseong Korea in order to keep up with demand for 10nm products. 

 

With our successful 10LPE production experience, we have commenced production of the 10LPP to maintain our leadership in the advanced-node foundry market,  

10LPP will be one of our key process offerings for high-performance mobile, computing and network applications, and Samsung will continue to offer the most advanced logic process technology

Just like Samsung’s 14nm FinFET node, it is expected that it will take a while before 10nm will be adopted by large chip makers like AMD, with the process being likely to be used on smaller SoCs and other designs before they can be used on larger chips like desktop grade CPUs and GPUs.
