20nm ARM SoCs to operate at frequencies above 3.0GHz
It is expected that future arm soc manufactured with this new manufacturing process operating at frequencies 30% higher, hold 25% lower fuel consumption and a density 1.9 times that of existing manufactured SoC manufacturing process to 28nm.
Thanks to these improvements, 20nm ARM SoC operating frequencies could be higher than 3.0ghz and integrate CPU and GPU architectures much more robust and powerful, thanks to which a bone will become even harder to crack in the is giving tough competition between ARM and x86 architectures.
Interesting times ahead, and the biggest beneficiaries of the high competitiveness of chipmakers, will be consumers.
