Silicon wafers like these are made in a process that measures in nanometers

IBM announced that it has achieved a major breakthrough in the field of computer processors, by developing a 2-nanometer chip in the laboratory.

Computer chips are measured in nanometers, and a lower number usually indicates significant development progress.

The company says that the experimental chip may improve performance by 45 percent compared to the current commercially available products, which rely on 7-nanometer chips.

She added that the chip is characterized by being more energy efficient, as it consumes 75 percent less energy than the currently available chips, while providing the same performance.
