Development of 2nm Transistor

A new leap has been made in the race to create ever smaller transistors. Chungbuk National University, located in South Korea, has successfully created a 2nm transistor, which is drastically smaller than that of the currently used 32nm transistor. This smaller size would allow for a much higher transistor count in future processors. Such a small size could offer added benefits for mobile computing by allowing a lower power usage and even smaller processing units than are currently available. Such technology could drastically change the current evolution of computing power.
