3- nanometer chips from TSMC under test
San Francisco, July 8, 2021
Apple and Intel are testing next-generation 3-nanometer chip production technology from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC). If successful, TSMC will begin producing the chips for Apple and Intel as early as next year.
TSMC expects the new 3-nanometer chips to improve performance by 10-15% at the same power consumption as 5-nanometer chips, or reduce power consumption by 25-30% at the same speeds.
Apple would reportedly use the chips in future iPad models.
Intel plans to use them in notebooks and data centers.
