Intel 10nm Chips Are Superior But 30 Percent Cheaper Than Samsung's
While Samsung is having a heyday with its unveiling of the Galaxy S8 and other new products, Intel is setting up a rivalry with the Korean conglomerate with regards to chips. Intel boasted that its upcoming 10-nanometer chips are much better and cheaper than Samsung's and every other company's chips.
Intel said that its 10nm chips will have "2.7 times the transistor density of the previous generation", as per Venture Beat. In other words, Intel will pack 100.8 million transistors per square millimeter. The standard, according to Moore's Law, is that the number of transistors on a chip will double every two years. If Intel does succeed in putting more transistors on a chip, it can indeed lay claim to having the fastest chip ever. With less material needed to make smaller transistors, the price of the chip also goes down by as much as 30 percent. As it stands, Intel is primed to manufacture "smaller, cheaper, and faster" chips as the company shifts from one generation to another.
Aside from Samsung, TSMC and Global Foundries are the two other major chip manufacturers while Qualcomm and AMD partnered with them to make their chips. All these companies made the move to 10nm chips before Intel. According to EE Times, the 10nm chips of Samsung and TSMC only have around half of the density of Intel's 10nm chips. Samsung has already utilized its 10nm processors with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S8. It is powered by the 10nm Snapdragon 835 processor.
Intel is calling for the industry to change the standard measurement as dictated by Gordon Moore in 1965. The law, according to Intel, limits the increase of transistors to two which the company has proven to be breakable. Intel insists that the development of chips should depend on the advances in technology particularly in the industry and not on Moore's Law.
