ARM and Globalfoundries Hammer Dea PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 14 August 2012
Sure enough, the smartphone market has been heating up tremendously recently, and ARM has gained a sizable market share through their revolutionary mobile chips that are simply unrivaled when it comes to power consumption versus processing power ratio. Nevertheless, ARM knows that future mobile chips lie in the 20nm architecture, and they have recently hammered a deal with Globalfoundries, in which Globalfoundries will be tasked to fabricating the silicon needed to produce the chip.

Generally, the 20nm processors are far more energy-efficient, and it also provides user better processing power, which leads to more responsive smartphones in the future. Apparently, Globalfoundries is being prepped to fabricating the silicon that is needed to produce that type of chip, and analysts predict that global smartphone manufacturers like Samsung would soon be knocking on Globalfoundries’ doors soon. Of course, the 32nm Exynos chips or the 28nm Snapdragon S4 would still be around, but pushing the benchmark past the 22nm architecture would definitely give the microprocessor manufacturer an edge over their competitors.
