It's no longer exclusively silicon transistors ay 7nm, its a Silicon Germanium channel x-istor..

maybe 2018 not 2016, but  If someone were to go right to this skipping over all the in between  sizes  we would get close to a .05 watt per gh chip

Please support sidehack with his new miner project Send to : 1BURGERAXHH6Yi6LRybRJK7ybEm5m5HwTr
I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Have they finished solving the problems of working with Germanium usually costing something like two orders of magnitude more than silicon?

Just because IBM demonstrated it is possible to achieve a 7nm process doesn't mean it'll be here next year by any stretch of the imagination.  I'd guess 2020 before 7nm is produced in a consumer chip.  They've got to go through 10nm first.

And GPUs are still 28nm. What a joke

well gaming industry don't need to push the processing so fast because many user are not running 10 x vga like in mining, and wasting energy for their instamining or fastmining or whatever

so the gain in consumption would not be so distinguished, but i believe than can already do gpu at a lower productive processing if they desire to do it, especially amd..

7Nm is going to be used in multi billion dollar markets such as cellular phones.  Until BTC goes up in price the entire mining market is only $400M right now for everyone.  Even if you were 25% of the global it's barely going cover the investment of 16Nm right now.  Most large companies make a number of different iterations of a desired processor before releasing the final product.  There are a lot of hidden costs in R&D and development that would not make 7Nm viable for some time without an increase in BTC price.

That's because of TSMCs failed FinFet attempts.

I think goxed's broken image was supposed to be a link, so for the curious:

Thanks!

Intel's having problems scaling down to 10nm.
