Apple hopes its 3nm bet pays off
Apple is confirmed to be TSMC’s danger development partner, which is just what it sounds like. TSMC assumes the run is going to be good and everything should work, but there is a possibility that everything may need to be tweaked. It’s a risk that Apple is ready to take, because if all goes according to plan, they’ll have access to 3nm chips even faster than the competition.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is said to be going forwards with the production of 3nm wafers.

According to Digitimes (paywalled, through PC Gamer), TSMC will manufacture 3nm danger wafers by the end of 2021. At its worldwide technology symposium last summer, the company announced that it expected its 3nm N3 node to join risk production this year ahead of volume production in the second half of 2022.

Compared to N5, the 3nm N3 node of TSMC can improve performance by up to 15% at the same power level or minimise power consumption by up to 30% at the same transistor speed.

TSMC is forecast to produce 30,000 3nm wafers per month by the end of 2021, a number that is projected to increase to 105,000 by 2023-24. In contrast, TSMC makes approximately 140,000 7nm wafers a month.
