Toshiba, IBM, Samsung and others in pact with the 32-nm devil

Filed under:

Toshiba just announced its membership in an alliance to develop system chips using 32-nm circuitry. That’s well below the existing 45-nm processes used in manufacturing Intel’s Penryn, for example. The alliance includes IBM, AMD, Samsung, Infineon, Freescale, and Singapore’s Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing. No surprise really, what with Tosh already in bed with IBM to develop chips using 32-nm processes. The agreement is good until 2010 and covers design, development, and the production of the itty bitty circuitry. A move which should reduce manufacturing costs for the alliance with the savings passed along to us consumers.
