IBM Unveils First 2 Nanometer Chip Technology of the World

By making a 2nm chip in its research lab, IBM claims to have made a major advance in computer processors.

Nanometres (nm) are used to calculate the process of making computer chips, with a lower number normally indicating a step forward.

IBM says that its reference chip outperforms existing 7nm commercially available products by 45 percent.

It’s much more energy efficient, requiring 75% less power to meet current output, according to IBM.

According to the company, the technology could “quadruple” phone battery life, implying that phones would only need to be charged every four days.

The physical size of transistors was previously measured in nanometres (one billionth of a metre) by the computer chip industry. A lower “nm” number is now commonly used as a marketing term to describe new generations of technology, which result in improved performance and lower power consumption.
