Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturer TSMC shared new 5 nm manufacturing information for the AMD 6000 CPU. The company also announced that production of 3 nm will begin in the second half of 2022.
One of Taiwan’s largest independent semiconductor manufacturers, TSMC, shared new information about existing and future processes. The company announced the production of 5 nm and 3 nm.
The company shared all this information as part of the Technology Symposium event. Okay, let’s see what information the company has.
First companies to use 5 nm
Starting at 5 nm, TSMC announced that the first process uses EUV technology and provides 15% more performance than N7 (7 nm), or that it provides the same performance, 30% less than 5 nm. The company also announced that N5 is better at coping with the problems.
Currently, the company produces 5 nm, and the first customers of the company were Huawei and Apple. In addition, AMD will switch to Ryzen 2022 and Zen 6000 processors in 4 years at 5 nm. The company was listed among buyers 5/2022 for Zen 4 CPU and RDNA 3 GPU from 2021 nm. Hopper and XE GPU Intel are also listed as clients.
Updated 5 nm or 5NP will be shown next year. They will either give 5% better performance than 5N, or reduce power consumption by 10%.
3 nm and beyond
When we look at 3 nm or N3, we show an increase in performance from 10% to 15% compared to N5 or a decrease in energy consumption from 25% to 30%, a similar phenomenon is observed when switching from N7 to N5. High 3 nm production is expected to begin in the second half of 2022.
Also in “Tehradar” reported that there will be N4. So far, there is no accurate information about what this scheme will offer to improve performance or save energy. It is assumed that production of this chain will begin in 2022. At the table are innovations such as nanoparticles (nanosheet) and nanocablos (nanowire).
