IBM taps Samsung for manufacturing its 7-nm based newest chips
IBM announced a new processor chip for data centres that will be able to handle 3 times the workload of its predecessor. The chip, similar to AMD, will use 7nm technology and will be manufactured by Samsung. Both IBM and AMD use outside chip factories to compete against Intel Corp, the leading provider of central processor chips in data centres. Intel has delayed the launch of its next-gen processor chips, enabling rivals to gain market share.
