ARM strikes strategic partnership with TSMC over 64-bit FinFET processors

2012-Jul-24 | Tags: arm

Start64!TSMC and ARM announced today that they will extend their existing collaboration beyond 20nm fabrication to deliver ARM-based processors that use FinFET transistors.

More specifically, the collaboration will help ARM optimise the next generation of 64-bit processors that will be based on the new ARMv8 architecture, which was announced back in October 2011 (AMCC showcased a 64-bit ARM server prototype chip last year but I believe the mainstream vendors will unveil 64-bit models at CES early next year).
