Processor The Best Thing About IBM’s Super-Chip? It’s Not From Intel

Competition is a good thing.



Quote:
IBM says it has built a computer chip whose smallest features are about seven nanometers wide, meaning it could provide about four times the capacity of today’s chips. Basically, it packs far more transistors into the same space, and that means data can travel more quickly between those transistors.

The announcement, made on Thursday, was hailed as a breakthrough, evidence that semiconductors will continue to improve in the years to come. But Patrick Moorhead, an analyst who closely follows the chip business, had a slightly different reaction. “I believe Intel has done the same thing already,” he says, referring to the world’s largest chip maker. “They’re just not telling people.”
