Xilinx Starts To Ship 16nm FinFET+ Chip Ahead Of Schedule

Some people seem to think that we’ll be seeing Nvidia’s upcoming lineup sooner based on news like this. Thanks to NoNRG for the link.

Xilinx, a leading maker of programmable gate arrays as well as special-purpose system-on-chip solutions, this week said that it had made the first customer shipment of its Zynq UltraScale+ processing solution. The chip is made using Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.’s second-generation 16nm FinFET process technology (CLN16FF+) with increased performance and lowered power consumption.
