Samsung begins 2nd-gen 10-nanometer production

Share

It was a little over a year ago that Samsung announced the start of manufacture of its 10nm chip. The rest of the world, however, usually basks in the battery life efficiency coming with Samsung's homebrew Exynos line of processors, and often the added benefit of a better audio processor. The newly developed Exynos 9810 is based on the 2 generation 10-nanometer (nm) FinFET process technology, 10LPP (Low Power Plus). At the very least, Samsung will be using them in the production of the Galaxy S9. If accurate, that means Samsung would be the only device maker to have access to 10LPP chips early next year.

The second-generation chip with 10LPP technology allows it to accomplish a 10 percent performance boost with 15 percent lower power consumption when compared to the first generation processor. The new process is derived from the 10LPE technology which has already been perfected, the new technology offers competitive advantages by greatly reducing turn-around time from development to mass production.

Dogs are smarter than cats
Hunting requires a lot of energy, particularly for large predators, and the intervals between successful kills are unpredictable. The study also found that even though raccoons have brains the size of cats - they have the same number of neurons as a dog.

Samsung is committed to improving its 10nm technology, continuing this trend with 8LPP, which is promised to be even more power efficient than the 10LPP process.

Samsung also announced today that its newest manufacturing line, S3, is ready to ramp up production of 10nm chips (and eventually 7nm FinFET chips).

However, news broke on Thursday afternoon that Dave Doeren would not take the open job at Tennessee . Wins over Boston College and rival UNC sandwiched a tight loss at Wake Forest.

The 10LPP chips are first expected to appear on the market early 2018, with wider availability expanding throughout the year. S3 is the third fab of Samsung's Foundry Business, following S1 in Giheung, Korea and S2 in Austin, USA.
