As 2022 draws to a close, more information about the new generation of 2023 chips Apple It’s being released, and the latest news reveals that TSMC is set to begin manufacturing 3nm chips in the coming weeks. The main source of the news is DIGITIMES Asia, and this news is not entirely surprising considering that unofficial information was published in the past regarding the cooperation of TSMC and Apple to manufacture 3nm chips.
However, it is not yet clear what kind of devices will use these new chips, but we can expect these chipsets to be used in future iPhone Pro models that are scheduled to be released at the end of 2023. TSMC recently expanded its production line in the United States, and the company approved the construction of 2 new factories in the state of Arizona.
In the past weeks, the company held a ceremony in this regard in Arizona, and Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, also spoke about this and talked about Apple’s future cooperation with TSMC to produce chips in the United States. So far, it has been confirmed that the two TSMC factories under construction in Arizona can produce 3 and 4 nm chips for Apple and other companies.
However, the two companies have not yet announced which Apple products the new chips will be used in. While Apple’s current A16 Bionic processors have shown good performance, it was recently revealed that Apple has reduced some of the graphics capabilities of these chips due to not meeting standards in this area.
According to reports, Apple had plans to improve the GPU in this series of chips, but the company eventually realized that these features consume too much power and increase the chip’s heating rate, which is apparently unacceptable from Apple’s point of view. .
