TSMC is preparing the production of 3-nanometer chips in 2023 – Gambling

The largest manufacturer of semiconductor products company TSMC will launch a 5-nanometer process technology in the second quarter of next year. On him already expect AMD, Apple, Hysilicon and others. However at TSMC are planning reduce the size of transistors even more.

It is reported that in 2023 the company will begin production of 3-nanometer solutions. It is expected that such chips will enter the market at the end of the year, closer to the holidays.

At the moment, it is not known who will get access to the new process technology earlier than others, but it is obvious that the struggle for first place will be serious. Moreover, it is obvious that each new reduction step is becoming more expensive. Therefore, companies are experimenting with various tricks: increase the number of cores, change the layout and so on.

However, in the future they will have to carry out some radical changes for the further growth of speed in order to stay on the market. Whether this will be an architecture update or something else is not yet clear.
