IBM, a leader in the development of electronic systems and devices, revealed the development of the world’s first 2-nanometer chip, to outperform the major global companies in this field, led by Samsung, Huawei, Qualcomm and Intel.
The company indicated that it was able to put 50 billion transistors in a small processing chip the size of a fingertip, and this chip can provide 45% more work speed than 7 nm chips, and 75% more energy efficiency as well.
According to the figures, the 2 nm process chip can extend battery life up to 4 times compared to 7 nm chips – meaning that the phone only needs to be charged once every 4 days, according to the company.
The 2 nm process chips will help provide more space for manufacturers within mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and computers, and will help develop the use of fifth and sixth generation technologies expected to be launched in early 2028, in addition to providing greater speed and higher energy efficiency.
It is noteworthy that most companies were able to use 7 nanometer technologies in their devices during the past period, led by Huawei, which was the first to introduce the technology, then came the 5 nm technology that was available with Samsung and Qualcomm chips – both of them use Samsung 5 nm technology, as well as Apple and AMD that use 5 technology. Nm of TSMC. While Intel still uses 10-nanometer technology in its processors, despite the great power it provides, it is seeking to introduce 7-nanometer processors soon.
Samsung and a number of other companies were working on developing 3-nanometer processing chips for commercial use in the coming period, but IBM outperformed them all and announced a 2-nanometer chip now.
