Apple’s upcoming 3nm chip will begin production in the second half of 2022 by supplier TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited), says DigiTimes.
Today the news breaks with an outline saying Apple has a long-term plan for TSMC, stating that the upcoming 3nm chip will offer a 15% performance boost alongside 30% improved energy efficiency and will enter mass production late next year.
TSMC has claimed its N3 technology will be the world’s most advanced technology when it begins volume production in the second half of 2022. Relying on the proven FinFET transistor architecture for the best performance, power efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, N3 will offer up to 15% speed gain or consume up to 30% less power than N5, and provide up to 70% logic density gain.
As per reports, Apple previously booked the initial capacity of TSMC’s 4nm chip production for future Macs and more recently ordered TSMC to begin production of the A15 chip for the upcoming iPhone 13.
Although the report does not provide any details about how the new 3nm chip can be implemented in Apple products, it is safe to assume that it is still years away.
