In the era of hybrid cloud, AI, and the Internet of Things, demand for increased chip performance and energy efficiency continues to rise. IBM’s new 2 nm chip technology will play its part in helping advance the state-of-the-art in the semiconductor industry, and address this growing demand. According to IBM it will “achieve 45 percent higher performance, or 75 percent lower energy use, than today’s most advanced 7 nm node chips.”

  • IBM have listed the potential benefits of these advanced 2 nm chips to nclude:
  • Quadrupling cell phone battery life , only requiring users to charge their devices every four days ii .
  • Slashing the carbon footprint of data centers, which account for one percent of global energy use iii . Changing all of their servers to 2 nm-based processors could potentially reduce that number significantly.
  • Drastically speeding up a laptop’s functions, ranging from quicker processing in applications, to assisting in language translation more easily, to faster internet access.
  • Contributing to faster object detection  and reaction time in autonomous vehicles like self-driving cars.

“The IBM innovation reflected in this new 2 nm chip is essential to the entire semiconductor and IT industry,” said Darío 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.”
