IBM's 2nm transistors could (in a few years) supercharge your phone | Upscaled Mini

IBM has announced the development of 2nm transistors, collaborating with Samsung and their massive EUV manufacturing capabilities to build chips with these incredibly thin components. Smaller transistors can enhance performance or reduce power consumption, and they are a major factor in making modern electronics faster. More important than the size, though, is the fact that these are some of the first "nanosheet" or "gate-all-around" transistors we've seen, which is a novel design compared to the FinFET-based semiconductors we've seen for the previous decade.

While faster chips are coming, don't hold your breath. IBM has a tendency of claiming big advances 3-5 years before they actually come to market (they announced 5nm in 2017), so don't hold your breath.
