TSMC’s 2nm process is coming soon

Apple's Mac and iPhone chips may be the most powerful chips yet, at TSMC 3nm. But a new report suggests that Apple is working hard on its next-generation 3nm chips, with an eye toward the more advanced 2nm technology. It's not confirmed, but it's still worth keeping an eye on, considering that Apple has always supported TSMC's advanced processes.

Apple has previously adopted TSMC's 5-nanometer technology, using the 3-nanometer process in its M3 Mac chip and the A17 Pro chip in the iPhone 15 Pro series.

These chips have been used in 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops, 24-inch iMac desktops, and 13- and 15-inch MacBook Airs. the OLED iPad Pro is also expected to be powered by this chip, making it the fastest iPad to date.

TSMC plans to start producing 2nm chips in 2025 and has already provided samples to customers. In addition to Apple, other companies such as NVIDIA and AMD have also shown strong interest in the technology.

TSMC said at the meeting that due to the strong demand for high-performance computing and smartphones, the two 2-nanometer factories originally planned to be built will be increased to three, which will be TSMC's key production bases for 2-nanometer technology.

This series of actions heralds the full explosion of 2-nanometer process technology, which will not only meet the market demand for high-performance chips, but will also bring new growth momentum to TSMC.

More advanced process technology means chips can accommodate more transistors, resulting in improved performance and energy efficiency. As consumers continue to demand higher performance from mid-range products and longer battery life, Apple's adoption of TSMC's 3nm and 2nm chip technologies will keep its devices at the forefront of the market.

Apple has always supported TSMC's advanced process technologies, and this partnership is a continuation of their longstanding relationship. As technology continues to advance, Apple's future devices, including Macs, iPhones and iPads, will see a quantum leap in performance as a result of being powered by more advanced chips.

The industry continues to pay attention to whether Apple can successfully develop 3nm or even 2nm chips, and expects it to bring more innovation and surprises to the consumer electronics market.
