Samsung talks about 10nm FinFET process technology ahead of Galaxy S6 launch

The Galaxy S6 will bring along a slew of impressive features if the rumors and leaks are any indication, and it will also be the first smartphone to be powered by a processor manufactured on the 14nm process technology that is more power-efficient and powerful than CPUs based on the 20nm process technology.

Samsung is the first OEM to be mass producing 14nm mobile chips for mobile devices, and it seems the company isn’t sitting idle being content with the present, as it has announced that it is working on the world’s first 10nm FinFET semiconductor technology. Samsung is touting that this technology will be an important step for IoT (Internet of Things), something the Korean manufacturer is backing quite heavily in a bid to lead upcoming technologies.

Mobile chips based on 10nm tech will probably not show up on consumer devices until late 2016/early 2017, but it certainly seems Samsung will be focusing heavily on its chip business, something it needs to do if it wants to compete with the likes of Qualcomm.

Nothing here to be Amazed.. Samsung’s 14 nm Chip’s GateSize is Actually based on 20nm.. So Samsung is Still a YEAR Behind INTEL.
Samsung is Using 1st Generation of FinFET process on a 20nm GateSize.
If you Look at Intel’s Broadwell 14nm Chip it’s on 2nd Generation FinFET. So Intel will be the 1st to Move on to 10nm in Mid 2016 and 7nm Chips by Late 2017.. !!

You are absolutely and totally WRONG!!! ……it was their Common Platform Alliance Partner, Global Foundries that had the issues with going to complete 14nm process. They’ve now licensed Samsung’s 14nm FinFet 3D Stacked Chip Process Technology. In fact Samsung has just demonstrated their 10nm FinFet Gate Last Process Technology. Even TSMC has been beat out by Samsung in getting to just 16nm FinFet Process Technology and are still having problems. So the reality for YOU is that Samsung has set a target of 2018 to beat out Intel as the #1 Chip Maker in the World. They’ll be at 10nm… Read more »

Dude you are a troll! Who for…….. we don’t know. Because simply leaving a link to site talking about a different subject having to do with chip process density, is not what being on the forefront of semiconductor industry is all about. Intel has been bleeding profusely, since Desktop sales started dying. IBM is getting out and if you want to divide up or regroup each camp into separate entities, you better lump TSMC in with Intel! ahaha…. because TSMC is not a chip designer. They only make chips and licensed Intel’s process technology. Where as the Common Platform Alliance… Read more »

Awesome what spending the most on your own R&D for greatest technology innovation, is able to lead this one company Global Domination still of the entire smartphone market. I’m not talking for one lame ignorant quarter a year like Apple. To only make it seem like that’s what you sell all year long. The reality is that Samsung’s sales with so many models top to bottom, never have just one good or bad quarter a year like Apple. Samsung has for 4yrs straight now set the smartphone sales record higher. Even in a so called bad year, Samsung still managed… Read more »

there’s this thing, called the surface pro 3, that is a mobile device, that used an intel 14nm atom. But yeah, if you want false news, this site is great.

the author won’t even update the article with this.
