Latest 7nm publications
After five years of research and development, IBM has taken the wraps off its first 7nm processor, which is packed with features to cater to the demands of modern-day hybrid cloud computing.
The tiny chip is the tenth iteration of IBM’s flagship Power processor range and is destined for enterprise data centres by the second half of 2021.
7-nanometre fabrication is the cutting edge of bitesize chip manufacturing and affords major gains in power efficiency and performance compared to the 14-nanometre process, like that used for IBM’s current-generation Power9 semiconductor. IBM said Power10 will deliver a three-fold improvement in capacity and processor energy efficiency compared to Power9.
