A microprocessor with 50 billion transistors in the space of nails
California: IBM has developed a microprocessor with the world’s thinnest transistors, with each transistor being 2 nanometers wide, even thinner than DNA.
Thanks to such microscopic transistors, the microprocessor that has been developed has 50 billion transistors as large as ordinary human nails, which is undoubtedly a record.
IBM’s new microprocessor, which is currently not given a formal name, will be 45% better in performance than existing microprocessors and will save up to 75% of power.
It should be noted that at present the individual microprocessors / microchips used in everything from smartphones and tablets to computers have an individual width of 7 nanometers while the manufacture of 5 nanometer transistors has also been started on a limited scale.
