Apple is gradually transitioning from Intel to its custom chips with the upcoming iMac. The company will ultimately shift to its silicon completely sometime in the future and we are hearing details on the production of Apple’s 3nm chips.
According to a new report, TSMC will begin the commercial production of 3nm process chips in the last quarter of 2022. Apple is expected to launch its first devices with 3nm chips in 2023 including Macs with M3 chips as well as A17 chips for the iPhone. Scroll down to read more details on the subject.
TSMC plans to begin commercial production of chips based on the 3nm process in the fourth quarter of 2022, according to a new report from DigiTimes. Apple will release 3nm chips made by TSMC in 2023 and will potentially be called the M3 chip and A17. The new 3nm processors will feature enhanced performance capabilities and better battery life, The 3nm M3 chips will power 2023 Macs as well as iPhone models.
According to prior reports, future Macs could have up to four dies in their m3 CPUs. This will allow for a CPU with up to 40 cores. The M1 chip, on the other hand, has an 8-core CPU, and the M1 Pro and M1 max chips have a 10-core CPU. Several tests have already demonstrated how the new processors excel in terms of speed.
The iPhone’s A15 chip is potentially the fastest on the market, and moving it to a 3nm process will unlock even more computing power. As soon as more information on Apple’s 3nm M3 chip becomes available, we’ll let you know.
