Ibm And Allies Find A Way To Make Chips Even

For comparison, 7nm is less than three times the width of that 2.5nm DNA strand.

It’s practically unfathomable that something can be made at this size.

IBM’s 10nm technology improved the power-performance ratio by 40 percent or 50 percent over today’s 14nm chips, meaning that a computer designer could either lower power consumption for better battery life or speed up software running on a computer. The 7nm design increases the power-performance ratio another 50 percent over the 10nm generation, Khare said.
