IBM likes to create a stir once in awhile, and judging by the tech-press response in the last week or three, they have achieved that goal with their announcement of 2-nanometer CMOS technology, developed at their Albany research centre. This technology is expected to give a 45% performance boost or 75% power reduction, compared with a 7-nm process. Of course the question is, compared with what 7-nm process?
IBM announced a breakthrough in semiconductor design and process with the development of the world’s first chip announced with 2 nm nanosheet technology. The new design is projected to achieve 45 percent higher performance and 75 percent lower energy use than today’s 7 nm chips. It will likely not be in production until 2024.
