Samsung Electronics has just unveiled that mass production of its first chips based on the 10 nm FinFET technology has begun. Compared to its predecessor that was built using the 14 nm technology, the new design offers increased area efficiency and the second generation is expected to debut quite soon as well.

According to the official press release, "Samsung’s new 10nm FinFET process (10LPE) adopts an advanced 3D transistor structure with additional enhancements in both process technology and design enablement compared to its 14nm predecessor, allowing up to 30-percent increase in area efficiency with 27-percent higher performance or 40-percent lower power consumption."   

Next year, the 10 nm process will move to the second generation. Samsung says mass production of the enhanced 10 nm parts is expected to begin in the second half of the year. The first-generation SoCs with 10 nm process technology that have just entered production are expected to show up inside consumer products in early 2017.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
