IBM announces the world’s first 2nm chip

The technology giant, IBM, comes to announce to the public the creation of the world’s first 2nm chip, made cataloged by IBM as being a big step forward in relation to chip technology.

As a way of rejoicing, the company claims to have compressed 50 billion transistors on a chip the size of a fingernail. It also advances, decanting already the qualities of the feat, that the 2nm processors can use 75% less energy, for the same performance, than the 7nm chips in CPU’s.

In other words, it is understood that this architecture can help processor manufacturers to provide a 45% increase in performance with the same amount of power compared to current 7nm chips, or the same level of performance using 75% less power , assures IBM. A balance is thus envisaged between the best performance and the greatest energy efficiency using a 2nm chip.

Mobile devices with 2nm chip-based processors can have four times the battery life than those with a 7nm chip, which leads IBM to conclude that the devices will only need to be charged every four days. As for portable computers, the advantages can be seen in increasing the speed of these processors, while in autonomous vehicles they would detect and react more quickly to objects, as clarified by IBM.

The technology, as IBM predicts; will have a positive impact on energy efficiency management in data storage, space exploration, artificial intelligence, 5G and 6G companies, as well as quantum computing.

Apparently, IBM made the discovery of the 2nm chip before its competitors. Apple’s M1 and A14 arrived alongside Huaway’s Kirin 9000. Other manufacturers, such as AMD and Qualcomm, are currently using TSMC’s 7nm chips, although Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 is made using Samsung’s 5nm technology.

As for Intel, it is unlikely that the company will launch 7nm processors by 2023. It currently uses 10nm and 14nm chips. However, Intel chips tend to have a higher transistor density than rivals within the same nm standard.

There is still no exact date when devices with integrated 2nm chips will be available. Between the announcement of these chips and their manufacture, many and varied challenges prevail.

Warranty, for now, only for 7nm processors. IBM plans to launch them later this year on its Power Systems servers. although 2nm processors are likely to take at least a few years to reach computers and mobile phones, it should be noted that more powerful and efficient CPUs are on the way.
