The two-nanometer technology can house 50 billion transistors on a chip the size of a fingernail, according to the company.
The American multinational IBM presented its chip with two nanometer technology, which promotes the progress and efficiency of the devices. Some of the potential benefits can extend the life of phone batteries, which are charged every four days.
The new chip, with the smallest architecture in the world, has the potential to improve performance by 45%, using the same amount of power or using 75% less power, while maintaining the same level of performance as current based chips. in seven nanometers.
Semiconductors play a fundamental role in industry as they are present in many devices, from household appliances to communication equipment, transportation systems and in critical infrastructures.
The two-nanometer technology can house 50 billion transistors on a chip the size of a fingernail, making them smaller, faster, more reliable and more efficient, IBM explained in a statement.
This capability means processor designers have more options to incorporate core-level innovations and enhance the capabilities of workloads such as artificial intelligence and cloud computing, as well as new avenues for security and encryption enforced by hardware.
The multinational is highlighting some of the potential benefits of these new chips, such as quadrupling the life of cell phone batteries, requiring them to be recharged every four days.
As well as “dramatically accelerating” the functions of laptops, from fast processing in applications to a faster 5G or 6G connection.
They could also help reduce the data center carbon footprint because if all data centers switched their servers to 2-nanometer processors, energy could be saved to power 43 million homes, IBM said.
