TSMC waves production 20nm and 16nm wafers in front of the camera

TSMC shows off some gorgeous 16nm and 20nm production wafers

I don't know where my wafer is - come on, TSMC - but seriously, the company has just shown off two wafers at Techcon: the first, a production 20nm SoC and the second, a pre-production 16nm without any qualifiers.






Our friend over at SemiAccurate snapped the beautiful shots of things to come. 16nm is the most interesting here, as we don't have 16nm tech in our devices, but 20nm-based chips are already baked into some devices on the market. SA says that 16nm FinFETs from TSMC should arrive in early 2015 if there are no glaring problems ahead.
