Tencent Technologies News, June 17, according to Taiwanese media reports, TSMC sprint 5 nanometers, has asked equipment suppliers to layout production capacity before October this year, is expected to produce in the first quarter of next year, Apple will be the first customer to import production.
TSMC will become the first wafer generation factory in the world to provide 5-nanometer mass production services, and will replace Samsung once again to dominate the new generation of Apple processors.
TSMC has never commented on a single customer or order, emphasizing that its 5N process has 1.8 times more logical density, 15% faster speed and higher power consumption than its 7N process. It supports the next generation of high-end mobile and high-speed computing chips, and locks in the 5G and AI markets.
TSMC also has full confidence that in the future, 7 nanometer customers will be introduced into the 5 nanometer process one after another.
Equipment vendors revealed that the TSMC layout of 5 nanometer process firepower is fully open. In particular, Samsung, a strong rival, skips 5 nanometers and intends to grab orders from Apple in the 3 Nanometer process. How many customers TSMC has attracted in the 5 nanometer process has become the most critical process to ensure rapid mass production in the future in the 3 Nanometer process.
The TSMC supply chain points out that TSMC has made a major breakthrough in the 5-nanometer manufacturing process. Apple requires TSMC to build a 5-nanometer production capacity and introduce mass production next year.
The president of TSMC, Wei Zhejia, said earlier that he had announced the launch of a 5-nanometer advanced process design suite platform, which is tantamount to announcing to the world that TSMC is ahead of the world in 5-nanometer wafer manufacturing and will remain ahead in the future in 3-nanometer.
