Globalfoundries and ARM tape out 20nm chip

Written by



Demonstrates 2.5GHz ARM part in 28nm


Globalfoundries and ARM proudly announced the tape out of the first 20nm ARM chip yesterday, but perhaps more importantly, they demoed a record breaking 2.5GHz Cortex A9 chip manufactured in 28nm.

The outfits collaborated closely on 20nm development and it is expected the new process will improve performance by about 35 percent and drastically cut power consumption compared to 28nm. However, since we have yet to see any 28nm ARM chips on the market, the introduction of 20nm parts seems a rather long way away.

As for the 28nm part, it was churned out by GloFo’s Dresden fab, using the company’s HKMG high performance platform. Curiously, it seems the performance could even be improved if the design is adapted to the high performance plus (HPP) platform.

It is still unclear whether we are looking at an actual product in development, or merely a technology demonstrator, but in any case the 2.5GHz clock gives us an idea of what to expect from next generation 28nm SoC designs, although clocks in production parts are likely to be somewhat lower.

AMD needs to get this 20nm into production now and apply that technology over to x86 too. Do it quick before Intel can release 14nm in 2013.

Gain ground on ARM producers and on Intel both at the same time. That's how AMD should be if they want to be competitive.

OMG so it never was GlobalFoundries fault!! Its always AMD's lazy engineers not able to make things work with Global Foundries, they had pressure from AMD coz of their free deal with Global Foundries to keep costs at minimal now after 1st January they will never be able to save money by louzy engineering! WOW!! Thanks to Fudzilla & staff for bringing us this news!! AMD HAS BEEN EXPOSED!! AMD & Rory Read's black Satanic money milking ACTIVITIES have been EXPOSED on 15th December 2011!

It doesn't matter if AMD is fabless. AMD requires a competitive process to make competitive products. It is AMD's responsibility to ensure they have a competitive process available and develop that process themselves if none is available.

Rory Reed knows this and so he recently fired Rick Bergman who was the man responsible for the AMD/Globalfoundries relationship.

Obviously Reed thought that Bergman wasn't working with Globalfoundries well enough to ensure that AMD has the process they require to manufacture competitive products.

Also, ARM SoC's are way less complex and yield dependant than a x86 CPU/APU or dedicated gpu.

Looks like AMD found someone to do the job Rick Bergman wasn't doing. Hopefully she will be able to do the job of ensuring Globalfoundries fixes their perpetually 2nd rate fabrication process.

:-* They dont know how to make a complex CPU/GPU of AMD or nvidia that's what happened to AMD Llano APUs yield issues....

There is nothing left to say I have basically DESTROYED all you AMD fag trolls in 2 weeks! bawahaha

No you don't have to rate me down you don't have to reply back to me or anything...

No You don't have to buy Intel shit or Nvidia shit...you continue to buy AMD shit so Intel & Nvidia keep their prices down.

End of the day the only guy getting his money's worth is ME!

You can continue to search for posts by [censored] up's like SuperXP & other fag trolls I don't care.

My loyalty lies only with the company giving me a good price & performance/power consumption combination. Cheers! :D
