IBM’s new 2 nm chip technology helps advance the state-of-the-art in the semiconductor industry, addressing this growing demand. It is projected to achieve 45 percent higher performance, or 75 percent lower energy use, than today’s most advanced 7 nm node chips.
Four years after IBM announced its milestone 5 nm design, this latest breakthrough will allow the 2 nm chip to fit up to 50 billion transistors on a chip the size of a fingernail.
Advanced 2 nm chips will enable:
* Quadrupling cell phone battery life, only requiring users to charge their devices every four days.
* Slashing the carbon footprint of data centers, which account for one percent of global energy use.
* Drastically speeding up a laptop’s functions, ranging from quicker processing in applications, to assisting in language translation more easily, to faster internet access.
* Contributing to faster object detection and reaction time in autonomous vehicles like self-driving cars.
