Telum can also be scaled to 32 of its own chips, while its dual-chip module has 22 billion transistors and 19 miles of wire on 17 metal layers, according to Helpnet.

IBM says this new technology has high chances of a “potentially new era of prevention of fraud at scale.”The company is partnering with Samsung to create these processors. Samsung’s 7nm extreme ultraviolet process technology is also used.

IBM’s Telum processor if it works accurately could detect money laundering, perform loan processing, conduct risk analysis and others.
