A few weeks ago, TSMC’s plans for the next few years began to be discussed. This company is responsible for the manufacture of chips inside Apple productsTherefore, any change can be critical. Mainly because it involves changes in their development, which generally lead to significant improvements.
This time it is a breakthrough in the chip manufacturing process, which would become 3 nm next year
At this point, the new devices launched by the company would have the first Apple Silicon chips manufactured in 3nm. Such a leap usually leads to noticeable improvements in performance as well as in fuel efficiency. Thanks to him, the future A16 or M3 would continue to increase their leadership in the face of competition in an increasingly hostile market.
For now, in the shorter term, it is expected that the next A15 Bionic, which would arrive with the iPhone 13, remain manufactured in 5nm, but with an improved process. Macs, for their part, would make the jump to 4nm later. For that, Apple would have monopolized all the production of TSMC, thus ensuring the next steps of its range of computers.
Thus, and leaving aside the advantages that 3nm chips will bring us in 2022, in a few weeks we will know the immediate future of Apple Silicon. It is expected that IPhone 13 debuts in September with the new chip. And while this isn’t a huge leap forward, we’re confident the A15 Bionic will continue to reach new heights of performance.
