    Even though Samsung has already trumped the rest of the industry by jumping past the 20nm chipset production process and moving straight to the 14nm process for mobile chips, Samsung wasn't done playing leap-frog. It looks like Samsung is planning on pressing their advantage as they have already announced breakthroughs in the 10nm manufacturing process and expect to have it online within 2 years. This means while the rest of the industry (like Qualcomm and Mediatek) will still be struggling to perfect the 14nm size, Samsung will have left them in the dust with an even smaller and more efficient new chipset.

    Samsung's current 14-nm FinFET SoCs are expected to arrive in the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, which will show up in most of Samsung's competitor devices, will be made using an "older" 20nm process.

    Here's a quote with a few more details,

    Based upon this breakthrough, it looks like Sammy will continue to dominate the planet when it comes to the manufacturing of SoCs, DRAM and other memory & flash storage technologies. It's going to be a challenge for any of the world's chipset manufacturers to catch up to Samsung's relentless pace for technological evolution. Samsung's competitors may need to step up their R&D investment...

    I say it's time to start dumping Qualcomm stock, if you have any.
