IBM’s two nanometre chip technology for semiconductors is projected to achieve 45 per cent higher performance, or 75 per cent lower energy use, than most advanced seven nm node chips.

It uses IBM’s nanosheet technology and can fit up to 50 billion transistors on the chip.

The benefits include quadrupling cell phone battery life, only requiring users to charge their devices every four days; slashing the carbon footprint of data centreswhich accounts for one per cent of global energy use; speeding up a laptop’s functionsranging from processing in applications, to assisting in language translation, to faster internet access; and contributing to faster object detection and reaction time in autonomous vehicles like self-driving cars.
