TSMC: 5nm process mass production is progressing smoothly and 3nm process will be overcome in the future

Recently, TSMC released the fourth quarter of the 2019 financial report. According to the financial report data, the 7nm process, which was the first mass production in 2018, has brought in TSMC’s revenue of $ 9.3 billion. Currently, TSMC is actively mass-producing 5nm chips. It is expected that 5nm chips will be mass-produced in the first half of 2020.
Apple and Huawei are both important customers of TSMC. New Apple chips, flagship Kirin chips, etc., will use the more advanced TSMC 5nm process. Earlier news showed that Apple’s A14 chip will use TSMC’s latest 5nm process, while Apple’s orders will account for two-thirds of TSMC’s production capacity, which may promote TSMC’s revenue to continue to grow. It is understood that the 5nm process can increase the density of the transistor by 80% and the speed by 20%.

The production capacity of 5nm chips may contribute 10% of TSMC’s revenue in 2020. However, in addition to 5nm chips, TSMC has not stopped the pace of research and development. It is reported that TSMC is developing a new 3nm chip, and this more advanced process is expected to achieve initial production in 2022. It can be seen that in the next few years, 7nm chips and 5nm chips will be mainstream.If you want to buy used iPhones, there are used iPhone 6s plus, used iPhone 7, used iPhone 8 plus on sale in Energyitshop!
