TSMC announced the release date of the first 3nm processors

28 September 2020, Monday By M. Konwar

One of the largest manufacturers of mobile processors TSMC spoke about the timing of the release of a new generation of chips, which will be manufactured using a 3-nm process. In addition, it became known which company will be the first to receive the flagship processor family.


According to representatives of the chipmaker, in 2021 it is expected to release trial copies of 3-nm chips, and their mass production is scheduled for the second half of 2022. The first batch of the latest processors will be delivered under a special order from Apple, which has been actively cooperating with TSMC since 2016.

Earlier, the CEO of the Taiwanese company noted that the transition from a 5-nanometer to a 3-nm process allows you to increase the density of transistors by about 70%. At the same time, the computing power of the chips increases by 10-15%, and their power consumption is reduced by 25-30%.

In addition, TSMC is already engaged in research in the field of mastering an even more "subtle" technological process. The company plans to build four new plants with a total area of 90 hectares. According to the vendor's roadmap, testing of the 2-nm process will begin in 2023, and mass production will begin in 2024.
