Anonymous, 10 May 2019How is it sloppy? ExplainSloppy was not the most accurate of words to choose, but the correct meaning is mini.
Rave, 10 May 2019At out current technology standard quantum computers are not possible for the near future and ... moreI really think it's time to start making dual-boot smartphones. One for Android and one for a real full-blown version of Linux or even windows, since the hardware can handle it.
I know this isn't for "regular users", but I'd totally buy one of those.
If you make it with a slider for laptop-like buttons I'm definitely buying it!
I'd rather have a laptop-like smartphone with querty buttons than a foldable one..
Let's hope it will happen!
Walter C. Dornez, 10 May 2019True. But I was specifically referring to the 5nm process and the EUV process. Samsung reporte... moreAnd.. I'm trying to let you know that someone on this comment section remind me that TSMC already announced in 2018, so that's mean even in 5nm process TSMC is already ahead of Samsung.
Alien , 10 May 2019What is the lowest they can go? 2nm? What happens after that? We all jump the boat of quantum... moreAt out current technology standard quantum computers are not possible for the near future and the next logical step would actually be to improve software as hardware is already pretty fast if we want exponential gains like in the 2008 or something we need better software
7nm, 5nm, 3nm...what ever they decide to call it...it means nothing anymore. Let's use 5nm as an example...they call it "5nm" commercially, but you won't find any distance in the semiconductor design that is 5nm in size. The gate- and metal pitch of the 5nm process is 44nm and 32nm is size. They should really change the commercial name to reflect the density rather than some thumb-sucked random number.
What is the lowest they can go? 2nm?
What happens after that? We all jump the boat of quantum processor smartphones?
AnonD-816568, 10 May 2019Well according to someone on this comment section it already announced in 2018 and also Samsun... moreTrue. But I was specifically referring to the 5nm process and the EUV process. Samsung reported that they made it before TSMC did
Walter C. Dornez, 10 May 2019Samsung actually did the same thing a few weeks backWell according to someone on this comment section it already announced in 2018 and also Samsung latest and greatest Exynos still on 8nm while TSMC already on 7nm so the Chinese/Taiwanese companies is ahead of Samsung.
AnonD-816568, 09 May 2019Dang they already beat Samsung with 7nm now they want to go 5nm as soon as possible it seems C... moreThey beat Samsung to 7nm but that's only because Samsung saved 7nm for their euv process. Which it's still up in the air who will bring that first
Anonymous, 10 May 2019Taiwan is still China And officially it is the republic of ChinaYes. But PRC could not control it. It's different from Huawei or Xiaomi.

1- Sloppy die shrink
2- Proper die shrink afterwards.
Tech is awesome. You get half the product now and then you are urged to buy the other half next year
