Apple’s 3nm chips will launch mass production next week at TSMC
A new report from DigiTimes claims that TSMC is ready to start production of 3nm chips in its Fab 18 and, of course, as one of TSMC’s biggest customers, Apple will be the first to reap the benefits of the cutting-edge technology. This is in line with previous reports and Apple appears to be on track to upgrade its next-gen devices in 2023 with an M2 Pro chip.
Rumor has it that TSMC will hold a ceremony at the Southern Taiwan Science Park on December 29 to celebrate the start of 3nm chip production and detail its plans to expand 3nm silicon production as a whole.
Current reports indicate that Apple plans to implement its M2 Pro chip based on TSMC’s 3nm node in its upcoming MacBook 14 and 16, Mac Studio and Mac mini. Later, A17 Bionic and the M3 chip will likely be based on an improved 3nm production process from TSMC.
