IBM has officially announced today the production of the first 2nm chipset, laying the foundations for the semiconductor industry and the electronic devices of the future.

According to the company, the new design can achieve 45% high performance and 75% lower energy use compared to chips using a 7nm process.

In real-world use, 2nm chipsets could mean quadrupling cell phone battery life, requiring a charge only every four days, speeding up object detection in self-driving cars, and improving the speed and efficiency of laptops.

According to Dario Gil, SVP and Director of IBM Research:

‘’It is the product of IBM’s approach of taking on hard tech challenges and a demonstration of how breakthroughs can result from sustained investments and a collaborative R&D ecosystem approach’’.
