Upcoming 20nm Mobile Processors to Clock at over 3GHz

Future high-end smartphones could arrive on shelves with processors clocked at over 3GHz, courtesy of the new 20nm production method, recent reports on the matter suggest.

Apparently, TSMC, a leading chip maker from Taiwan, is working on 20-nanometer ARM processors that could consume up to 25 percent less energy than today’s 28nm chipsets, while also being able to deliver 30 percent more performance. This would translate into clock speeds of over 3GHz inside mobile devices, a significant improvement over today’s high-end Snapdragon 800 CPU, which can reach 2.3GHz per core, as PhoneArena notes.

The new mobile chips are expected to enter production sometime next year, and should help ARM strengthen its position on the market in front of rivals Intel and AMD (although they are considering mobile processors built using the 14nm process, fudzilla reports).
