Samsung has made an official announcement stating that the second generation of its processors based on the 10nm process is ready for mass production and that to accommodate growing demands, Samsung is increasing their manufacturing capacity.
As of now, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 and the Samsung-made Exynos 8895 are the two chipsets made based on the 10nm Low Power Early(LPE) process. The second generation of 10nm processors will have the Low Power Plus(LPP) technology instead of LPE. Apart from that, the newer chipsets will also feature improvements to the 3D Finfet structure.
As a result, there will be a 10% improvement in terms of performance and 15% reduced power consumption. The 10nm LPP based chipsets will mostly be seen first on the upgrades that will soon reach the top variants of the Exynos and Snapdragon processors. Samsung will soon add equipment needed to manufacture the 10nm chips at their S3 facility in Hwaseong, Korea, and the chips will begin shipping out by Q4 of this year.
