    Samsung just released their latest 10nm process chip on the Galaxy S8, and now they are ready to start production on the 2nd generation of those chips! The 2nd Gen 10nm process tech will be referred to as 10LPP (Lower Power Plus). This will be an improvement on first generation 10LPE (Low Power Early). The new chips will allow for a 10% performance boost and 15% power efficiency boost.

    “With our successful 10LPE production experience, we have commenced production of the 10LPP to maintain our leadership in the advanced-node foundry market. 10LPP will be one of our key process offerings for high performance mobile, computing and network applications, and Samsung will continue to offer the most advanced logic process technology.”

    — Ryan Lee, Vice President of Foundry Marketing, Samsung Electronics

    Samsung has already started adding equipment to its facilities to ramp up production on these chips. The new line is expected to be ready for production by Q4 2017. We are not sure when Samsung will begin to use them in phones, but my best guess would be with the Galaxy S9.

    Cool beans, maybe early enough for the Note? Probably not, but one can be positive
