Samsung wants to produce 1.4nm chips by 2027

Samsung Foundry, which is the second largest active company in the field of chip production (the first rank is held by TSMC), announced during the Samsung Foundry Forum 2022 event that it plans to continue progressing in the field of chip production and chips produce smaller, faster and less consumption. According to Samsung Foundry, it seems that this company intends to achieve chip manufacturing with newer technologies as soon as possible, including 2 and 1.4 nm manufacturing technology.

Currently, Samsung is engaged in the production of 3 nm chips and is considered the first company in this regard. Meanwhile, TSMC, the best company in terms of chip production, has not started producing 3nm chips yet. Samsung started the production of these chips with Gate All Around technology (GAA for short) a few months ago. According to this company's claim, 3 nm chips are extremely optimal in terms of energy consumption, but a product equipped with a 3 nm processor has not yet entered the market to see if the claim of this Korean company is true or not.

Samsung intends to In 2024, it will unveil the second generation of 3 nm manufacturing technology. According to this company, the second generation of this technology will be about 20% smaller than the first generation, which means that we should still expect less energy consumption for phones, computers, cloud servers and wearable gadgets.

In 2025, Samsung Foundry will unveil SF3P+ manufacturing technology based on 3nm lithography to further improve this technology. This Korean company hopes to attract the positive opinion of companies such as Apple, AMD, Nvidia and Qualcomm by making progress in the field of producing low-power and powerful chips. Companies that we can almost say all of them now prefer TSMC over Samsung.

If you remember, it was just this year that Samsung and Qualcomm partnered to make the Snapdragon 8 generation 1 chip, but The performance of this chip in doing heavy tasks was so bad that it made Qualcomm go to TSMC to produce its Plus version. Using its 4nm manufacturing technology, which is more optimized than Samsung's technology, TSMC designed the Snapdragon 8 Plus generation 1 with more optimal performance, despite the higher processing power, so that Qualcomm can refer to it to build the Snapdragon 8 generation 2.

In 2025, however, Samsung will also unveil 2nm manufacturing technology. The important thing about this technology is that Samsung will use a new method to feed the transistors. Usually, feeding the transistors and communicating with them is done only through one side of the chip. But in 2nm manufacturing technology, this communication is done from both sides to improve the performance of the chip. Intel also wants to use similar technology in its processors in 2024.

Samsung also has a plan to produce 1.4nm chips and wants to implement the idea of making them in 2027. The name of this technology will be SF1.4, but unfortunately, we do not have any information about its specifications. However, Samsung seems to be more or less following Moore's Law. Also, this Korean company plans to increase its chip production capacity by 3 times by 2027 compared to this year. Now it remains to be seen whether with this program, Samsung will succeed in attracting the positive opinion of companies such as Apple, Qualcomm, Nvidia, etc.
