Despite being one of the world’s largest technology companies, Apple is still dependent on outside production. Yes, the company has perhaps the best engineering team in the world and its R&D department is unrivaled, but these teams are more focused on the design of the product. Therefore, the American tech giant often collaborates with other manufacturers such as Foxconn, TSMC, Samsung, and BOE on various issues. Now, there is a rumor going around that Apple plans to purchase the entire supply of 3nm chips from TSMC. Here are the details…
TSMC’s 3nm Chips: The Most Advanced Chips in the World, and Apple Wants Them All
The collaboration between Apple and TSMC continues to grow stronger. According to recent reports, the two companies have signed a major agreement for 3nm chips that will be used in both the A17 Bionic, which will power the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro models, and the M3 processors that will be the heart of the next generation of MacBooks. Apple has already purchased a large portion of the 3nm chips that will be produced in 2023. Some sources say this purchase was based on 90%. Now, this figure has reached 100%.
The rumor is based on a report from DigiTimes, which cited industry sources. The report said that Apple has already booked all of TSMC’s 3nm capacity for 2023. If the rumor is true, it would be a major coup for Apple. It would give the company a significant advantage over its rivals in the race to develop the most powerful and efficient chips. It would also allow Apple to maintain its leadership in the global smartphone market.
TSMC’s 3nm chips offer a number of advantages over its predecessors, including increased transistor density, reduced power consumption, improved performance, and support for new features. These advantages make 3nm chips a promising technology for a wide range of applications, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, servers, and even self-driving cars.
