Low power high performance chips
ARM has teamed up with TSMC to develop a 7nm process technology to produce low-power, high-performance chips for next-generation networks and data centres.
Two years after 7nm
Foundry TSMC claims it will be ready to roll out its 5nm process technology two years after the launch of its 7nm node..
We don't need no outsiders
AMD spin off Globalfoundaries is apparently doing rather well and developed its own 7nm and 10nm fabrication processes.
That is what they were buying
IBM has flogged its fabrication plants to GlobalFoundries and what the outfit might be getting is the fruits of its 7nm processing research.
Promised you a miracle
TSMC is telling the world that it is optimistic about its abilities to make chips using super thin process technologies.
Moore’s Law alive and kicking
TSMC is planning to qualify its 10nm node by the end of the year, with volume production slated for 2017.
For now, not sure after 7nm
Intel expects Moore’s Law will be around for a few more years, but after the semi industry hits 7nm, things could get a little complicated.
Bending Moore’s Law might be problematic
