Samsung, the Seoul-based tech giants will start the mass production of two new 10-nanometer processors by end of 2017. The mass production will be the second-generation 10-nanometer mobile application processors by end of this year and the third generation will be at the beginning of next year.
As reported by the Korea Herald, Samsung the South Korean tech giant and world's top memory chipmaker will boost the production of the 10-nanometer FinFET process technology. This mass production of the chipsets is to steady the high yield in order to meet the customer needs on schedule.
"Following the 10-nanometer Low Power Early version, the 10-nanometer Low-Power Performance and Low Power Ultimate will enter mass production by the end of the year and next year, respectively," said Yoon Jong-shik, executive vice president and head of foundry business at Samsung Electronics, in a press release. Yoon also added, "We will continue to offer the most competitive process technology in the industry."
It is reported that the new 10-nanometer chipsets are far better and faster than the older 14-nanometer chipsets. It is claimed that the new chipsets are about 20 percent faster and nearly 40 percent more efficient than the predecessors. The 10-nanometer LPE will be the Samsun's first generation mobile application processor and the company will start mass manufacturing of a new Low Power Performance 10-nanometer chip and another Low Power Ultimate chip.
It is also reported that the upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphones will be equipped with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 and Samsung's Exynos 9 processors with 10-nanometer FinFET process technology. Samsung will be the first company to start mass production of 10-nanometer chipsets.
Also, the Galaxy S8 Smartphone maker has shipped over 70,000 of these 10-nanometer chip wafers from the time it began production in October 2016. So, it is reported that the company's decision is wise enough to start the mass production of these 10-nanometer chipsets, as most of the smartphones in 2017 and 2018 will be dependent on these new chipsets. Stay tuned for more updates.
