Samsung announced at a recent conference that its chip production efficiency was improving again, reassuring chip designers that there was no need to worry about it. If you remember, it was only last month that it became clear that Qualcomm wanted to produce its new chips, including the Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 Plus and even Assign part of the production of the standard model of this chip to the best company in this field, TSMC. That said, the Korean company was under a lot of pressure because of corruption by some Samsung chip executives who forged 4 and 5 nanometer technology efficiencies, when in fact its chip production efficiency was only 35%. . In other words, out of every 100 chips that the company produced, only 35 were healthy. TSMC, on the other hand, uses this manufacturing technology without any problems and produces very efficient, low-consumption and excellent chips, and its efficiency is almost 70%.
This very poor performance infuriated Qualcomm so that the company The American seeks another company to compensate for its losses. The company reportedly decided to go to TSMC, and there was a lot of news about it, but it was unlikely that Samsung would allow Qualcomm to do so easily. Because the company intends to compete with its advanced technologies, with TSMC, which is also a long way from it. In this regard, the company's product manager, Kehyun Kyung, claimed that the production efficiency of chips is improving with new technologies.
Samsung, of course, did not accept the report that the production efficiency of its chips is 35% and believes that This is a false measure. Qualcomm, on the other hand, will definitely have a busy year if it wants to partner with TSMC, given the many orders the Taiwanese company has from MediaTek and Apple. That's why Qualcomm is expected to be Samsung's guest right now. Apple currently accounts for about one-third of TSMC's revenue and is expected to ship a large portion of orders for the A and M series nanometer chips.
Dimension 9000 produced by TSMC was able to surpass all available chips by a large margin and after A15 by a wide margin Proximity comes in second
The point is that even if Samsung chip production is improving, Qualcomm must be smart. Especially since the chip crisis is really bothering everyone these days. Naturally, low efficiency means less production of usable chips. According to Kyung, the higher the complexity of the manufacturing process, the more difficult the production process of the chip and consequently the lower the efficiency. According to Digitimes Asia, achieving high efficiency in the production of 4 and 5 nanometer chips is not something that Samsung can achieve with one claim.
However, the situation is very complicated at the moment. On the one hand, TSMC is busy with its many orders, on the other hand, Samsung, which claims to keep Qualcomm, is improving. But whatever it is, it is unlikely that Qualcomm will produce the Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 Plus and even Generation 2 chip. We can say that almost all the evidence we have indicates that the American company wants to go to TSMC to produce its new chips.
If you have followed the recent news, you know that 9000 Dimension with the same type and number of cores , Much better than the 1st generation Snapdragon 8 and appeared almost to the size of the unique A15 chip. The only difference with the Qualcomm representative is that TSMC produces Density and Samsung produces Snapdragon! So to compete with Diamond 9000, Qualcomm has to think about it, and Samsung needs to improve in order to compete with TSMC.
