    A group of Taiwanese boffins claims to have successfully developed the world's first 16nm chip.

    National Nano Device Laboratories said it managed to create the first 16nm chip, but don't expect to see the tech in real products anytime soon.

    Yang Fu-liang, the lab's chief, told AFT that the development could lead to tiny cellphones and laptops, but did not reveal many details about the process.

    "Sixteen nanometres used to be considered the final frontier," said Yang.

    Yang's colleagues at TSMC are still struggling to improve yields on their 40nm process, so 16nm is probably a long way off, but it's still quite an impressive feat.
