Apple’s A17 chip is produced with the second generation of 3nm technology

TSMC last year unveiled the N4 manufacturing technology as the new generation N5. Although both technologies are considered a subset of the same family, they are referred to as 4nm and 5nm manufacturing technologies. Now, in the near future, this company will launch the first chips based on N3 technology known as 3nm.

TSMC last year unveiled the N4 manufacturing technology as the new generation N5. Although both technologies are considered a subset of the same family, they are referred to as 4nm and 5nm manufacturing technologies. Now, in the near future, this company will launch the first chips based on N3 technology known as 3nm.

It is said that the new generation of iPads will use these chips. However, the next generation of the desired manufacturing technology is called N3E, which, in addition to improving performance, also reduces the energy consumption of the chips. According to Nikkei Asia, Apple's A17 chip uses the same technology and its mass production will begin in the second half of next year. It is said that the M3 series chips of Mac computers are based on the same lithography.

Currently, iPhone 16 Pro models use the A16 chip, which is made with TSMC's N4 technology. We should mention that Dimension 9000 and 9000 Plus and Snapdragon 8 Plus 1st generation chips are based on the same technology. Analysts believe that, like this year, next year only the iPhone 15 Pro models will receive Apple's new A17 chip, and the standard models will go to the market with the A16 chip.

We should note that these TSMC technologies benefit from FinFet design. They take. The Gate-All-Around design brings additional benefits to be provided with N2 technology. Currently, Samsung is preparing 3nm chips based on Gate-All-Around design, we have to see if Samsung can finally produce better chips than TSMC.
