IBM announced that it produced the world's first 2 nanometer processor


IBM, one of the largest IT companies in the world, announced that it produced the first chip with a 2-nanometer architecture.

IBM, one of the largest IT companies in the world, announced that it produced the first chip with a 2-nanometer architecture.

The distance between the transistors in the processors has been reduced to nanometers thanks to the advancing technology. The nanometer is called a billionth of a meter.

In the latest processors used in electronic products today, the gap between transistors is 7 nanometers.

US-based IBM says that 2-nanometer processors will have 45 percent higher performance than current processors, and 75 percent less compared to them. energy He says he will consume.

The company states that with the new processors, the energy consumption of mobile phones will decrease to one-quarter, so that the battery life of most phones today can increase to four days.

‘Groundbreaking’

IBM says the new technology can fit 50 million transistors in a chip the size of a nail.

Of the 5 nanometer processors manufactured in 2017, this number was 30 million.

The new technology has broken new ground, according to Peter Rudden, research director at market analysis firm IDC:

“Semiconductor manufacturers went from 14 nanometers to 10 and then 7. Even 7 nm posed a huge challenge for some manufacturers.

“With this invention, IBM gave the message to the technology world that it continues to be one of the biggest players in this field.”

IBM thinks that artificial intelligence will develop faster with this technology.

It can take years for new processor technologies to reach consumers.

The first 7 nanometer processors on the market in 2015 Intel It was 2019 that AMD delivered Ryzen processors produced with this technology to consumers.

Both TSMC, which owns AMD, and its competitor Intel are planning to produce ultra-low nanometer chips in the coming years.

On the other hand, there is a chip crisis in the world. While car manufacturers reduce capacity in their factories because they cannot find enough processors, graphics card manufacturers cannot keep up with the increasing demand.
