Apple and Intel First to Adopt TSMC's 3nm Technology: Report

Intel Postpones Production of Meteor Lake’s 3nm GPU Tile at TSMC, Trendforce Claims

Intel has decided to postpone volume production of its Meteor Lake’s GPU tile using TSMC’s 3nm-class technology (N3, N3E, etc.) to late 2023, according to a report from TrendForce Research. The delay has allegedly affected TSMC’s investments in expanding N3-capable production capacity. Apple and Intel were expected to be the first companies to adopt TSMC’s N3 production node…

Samsung will reveal the world’s first 3nm chip next week

Samsung formally announced its new 3nm chip technology a few weeks ago. But the Korean giant will reportedly showcase the world’s first such processor next week. Samsung unveiled the 3nm chip’s new Gate-All-Around (GAA) transistor architecture, which is supposed to be significantly more efficient and faster than current 5nm chips. While Samsung has started mass-production…

TSMC Outlines 3nm Roadmap: Five FinFlex Nodes

As pathfinding, research, and development cycle for all-new manufacturing technologies stretches, foundries have to introduce revamped versions of their nodes in a bid to meet client requirements. TSMC on Thursday formally unveiled its N3 (3nm class) family of fabrication processes that will be used to build leading-edge chips in the next three years. One of…

Samsung 3nm Chip Mass Production On Track To Start in Q2

Samsung on Thursday said that it is on track to start high-volume production using its 3GAE (3 nm-class gate all-around early) fabrication process this quarter (i.e., in the coming weeks). The announcement not only marks the industry’s first 3nm-class manufacturing technology, but also the first node to use gate-all-around field effect transistors (GAAFETs). “Enhance technology leadership via…

Intel Preps 3nm GPU, Server Chips: Rumor

Earlier this year Intel formally confirmed that some of its 2023 CPUs would be made by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. using an unspecified manufacturing technology. Fresh rumors from Taiwan indicate that Intel is prepping four products that will be made using TSMC’s N3 (3nm) node and the line-up looks rather curious (and perhaps unrealistic). Furthermore, production could start…

Samsung Foundry Tapes Out First 3nm Test Chip

Samsung Foundry Tapes Out First 3nm Test Chip

Samsung Foundry and Synopsys have announced that Samsung has taped out its first test chip using its 3GAA (3 nm) fabrication technology that features gate all-around (GAA) transistors. The test chips was designed using Synopsys’ Fusion Design Platform electronic design automation (EDA) tools.  Samsung’s 3GAA manufacturing process uses brand-new gate all-around (GAA) transistors that promise to enable…
