“The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processor family is a single chip platform-level solution built using Samsung’s 10 nanometer FinFET process with 18 billion transistors on only 398 square millimeters,” Qualcomm said in a release.
The two companies have long had a strategic partnership in the foundry area, and Samsung has used its 14-nanometer and 10-nanometer processes to create Qualcomm mobile processors. It has now expanded the partnership to server processors.
Samsung qualified its second-generation 10-nanometer FinFET process called 10LPP (Low Power Plus), which allows for 10 percent higher performance or 15 percent lower power consumption compared to the first generation, in April this year.
