Samsung and IBM announced a breakthrough in chip development



Current methods are for horizontal transistors, and new technology from IBM and Samsung allows for vertical placement. The current will also flow vertically. This will circumvent Moore’s Law performance limitations or help conserve energy at the expense of lower power consumption.

The new technology is called VTFET (Vertical Transport Field Effect Transistors). It is expected to provide double the performance or 85% energy efficiency compared to FinFET chips.

IBM and Samsung have not announced when we will see VTFET in commercial products.
