Samsung starts building 10-nanometer processors

Chip companies are battling Moore's Law tooth and nail, but Samsung says it's the first to start building processors using a 10-nanometer process, ahead of Intel and others. To put that into scale, the transistors will be just 50 times the size of a silicon atom, which is around 0.2 nanometers across. Samsung didn't say who it's building the system-on-chip for, but Korea's Electronic Times says it has an exclusive deal to build Qualcomm's next-gen Snapdragon 830 processors using 10-nanometer tech.
