Samsung announces that it will look for the 4 nanometers in its processors

Following the departure of the Galaxy S8 and its own processor, the Exynos 8895 including its variant with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Samsung started its path with the 10 nanometers in said processors. Now, look for the 4.

Both the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and the Exynos 8895 that mount the two variants of the Galaxy S8, the last flagship of Samsung, are processors of 10 nanometers FinFET. This refers to transistors   And to the size that these have within those components, which are determinants for the final size of these. This means that both their efficiency and performance are greater. Well, if you are surprised by the performance of these processors, grab it: Samsung plans to start "cane" at 4 nanometers. But what does this imply?

4 nanometers: goodbye to FinFET technology

Like other brands, Samsung has its own processors, which are the Exynos. For some time, it combines with Qualcomm processors but it is more normal to see in its high ranges the first ones. The 10 nanometers use FinFET LPE (Low Power Early) technology together with 3D transistors, as we tell you at the time. This allows an improvement in energy consumption by 27% and better performance: 40% no less. The funny thing is here: if Samsung got the 4 nanometers (which is not easy) would imply abandoning the FinFET technology.

Speaking in somewhat more technical terms, would be to force what is known as the limit of silicon , which is the limit that can reach this material for another that does not produce what is known as the transfer of electrons . This limit would be in the 5 or 7 nanometers , according to diverse scientists. Speaking more in Christian: this would mean that Samsung would have to rewrite the way in which such amount of nanometers should be reached.

And when will these processors arrive?

Unfortunately, Samsung has not set a date for such a target , so we do not know how long it might take to get such a size reduction on its transceivers. From 22 nanometers to the primary objective, the only nanometer , that goal has been progressively tried as the hardware increases and, although we are reaching the end of the war for power in Android, this would mean a before and after in What we know at the level of processing in the world of mobile telephony.

It is to see how the Korean firm will achieve such a feat, and how this affects   In aspects as key as the price or the power of the devices that carry said processors. Lately the section of gross power is already arriving at a progressive stagnation due to the levels of hardware that we have, so it would be great if we saw any revolution in this regard. Do not you think?
