IBM is the first company in the world to successfully develop a chip with 2-nanometer (nm) nanosheet technology. The tech giant confirmed the achievement in a press release published today, which projected that the new process would allow for 45 percent higher performance (or 75 percent lower energy use) than today’s most advanced 7 nm chips. Other benefits of 2 nm that were noted by IBM include faster laptops, higher battery life for smartphones, reduced carbon footprint of data centers, and faster object detection and reaction time in autonomous vehicles.

“The IBM innovation reflected in this new 2 nm chip is essential to the entire semiconductor and IT industry,” said Darío Gil, SVP and Director of IBM Research. “It is the product of IBM’s approach of taking on hard tech challenges and a demonstration of how breakthroughs can result from sustained investments and a collaborative R&D ecosystem approach.”
