Samsung today announced that they have started mass production of System-on-Chip (SoC) products with 10-nanometer FinFET technology also the company claims that this is an industry-first, that is true. It follows the successful mass production of the industry’s first FinFET mobile application processor back in January 2015. “The industry’s first mass production of 10nm FinFET technology demonstrates our leadership in advanced process technology,” said Jong Shik Yoon, Executive Vice President, Head of Foundry Business at Samsung Electronics, adding that the company will continue its efforts to advance scaling technologies.

The South Korean Giant is using 3D transistor structure with additional improvements being made to the process technology and design enablement compared to the 14nm process. Samsung claimed this will allow an up to 30 percent increase in area efficiency with 27 percent higher performance or 40 percent lower power use.

There were some rumours that Samsung and Qualcumm are working together on Snapdragon 830 with joint efforts. Now it’s looking to be true. However, company did’nt made any official statement yet on this matter. Devices powered by these new SoC products will be launched early next year.
