Samsung officially started the production of the first generation of its 3nm chips with Gate-All-Around manufacturing technology (GAA for short) yesterday.

Samsung Foundry, which is the chip production department of the Korean company, has just started the production of its first generation of 3nm chips. chips that are based on a new manufacturing technology called Gate-All-Around, which allows more transistors to be placed on a chip in a small space.

Compared to 5nm lithography, Samsung's new 3nm chips In terms of processing performance, they will be up to 23% better than the previous generation, while they will consume 45% less energy. Thanks to the new technology, the area around the chip, which mostly consisted of empty space, has now been reduced by 16%, so that the company has more space to enlarge other parts such as the battery inside a phone.

These are the specifications of the first generation of Samsung's 3nm chips, which started their production process yesterday. The second generation is said to be even more exciting because compared to the company's current 5nm manufacturing technology, they are 50% more efficient, 30% faster and 35% smaller. This means that compared to their first generation, they will be 5% more efficient, 7% faster and 19% smaller, which in itself is a significant improvement.

Thanks to this new manufacturing technology, Samsung from TSMC Happened because the Taiwanese company wants to unveil its 3nm chips later this year. Rumors also suggest that the company does not want to use GAA manufacturing technology and will resort to the same FinFET. Of course, TSMC's performance in making a chip is really exceptional, but if it doesn't use new manufacturing technology and on the other hand, Samsung can show a good performance unlike always, the attention of many companies will definitely be directed towards the Korean company. /p> BingMag.com <b>Samsung</b> <b>started</b> the <b>production</b> of the <b>first</b> <b>generation</b> of its 3 nm chips

The technology Samsung uses to make its 3nm chips is GAA MBCFET

GAA manufacturing technology allows companies to shrink the size of transistors so they can use more of them on a single chip. The more the number of transistors, the more current is transferred between them, and in practice, the processing power and speed of a chip improves and its energy consumption decreases. As the transistors get smaller, their number increases, but their ability to transfer current does not decrease a bit, so we can see a significant improvement in the speed and energy consumption of the next generation chips.

Samsung is currently in The build of the processor is not good and whatever it produces either heats up or is inferior in terms of power and speed compared to what TSMC produces. Now it remains to be seen whether with 3nm manufacturing technology it can finally beat TSMC for a year or not.
