In 2014, the 20-nm ARM-based processors to move beyond 3 GHz





Taiwan semiconductor manufacturers TSMC ready by early next year to begin mass production of the next-generation mobile processor on the ARM architecture using 20-nanometer process. ARM processors power consumption will decrease by 25 percent, and increase productivity by 30 percent.

To date, the maximum acceleration the best representatives of 28-nanometer chip, namely 800 Snapdragon and Tegra 4 at 2.3 GHz per core. 20-nanometer chips TSMC to raise the bar up to 3 GHz, while causing no performance compromise.

Thus, soon manufacturers of smartphones and tablet computers will be able to equip their products with new, more energy-efficient and high-speed mobile processors. Reducing energy consumption will positively affect the battery time – an increase of a quarter.

All this adds to the competitiveness of TSMC and ARM provides the ability to counter the impending threat, called x86, coming from Intel and AMD, especially in the market for tablet computers. But competitors are not asleep, too. If all goes as planned, by the end of 2014, Intel will release the 14-nanometer “atoms”. In the same year, AMD hopes to get the transistors of the same size.
