What happened? Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSMC) has entered trial production of its 3-nanometer process, or N3, at Fab 18 in southern Taiwan. If all goes according to plan, TSMC will move to volume production by the end of 2022.
Unnamed industry sources told Digitimes (Wall-to-Wall, via MacRumors) that TSMC plans to start shipping 3-nanometer chips to customers like Intel and Apple in the first quarter of 2023, which are rumored to have earlier chips in the field.

Apple's first 3nm chips are expected to be available on future Macs and iPhones, the M3 and A17 Bionic, respectively. Last month, The Information announced that some Apple M3 chipsets can pack up to four cores with a maximum of 40 cores. For comparison, the current generation M1 Pro and M1 Max chips have 10-core processors.

< p> During this time, we will likely see the release of Macs with M2 chipsets and iPhone 14 models with devices built on the N4P TSMN process, the company's third product, with significant improvements to the 5nm process.TSMC announced in October that N4P will deliver an 11 percent increase About the core N5 technology and a 6 percent increase over the N4, we're told the N4P will see a 22 percent improvement in power efficiency over the N5.

In related news, Intel is scheduled to visit TSMC later this month to discuss The production capacity and throughput of 3nm chips, which Intel intends to work closely with to avoid collisions with Apple at more than 3nm.Create TSMC.
