Apple to ditch the 4nm architecture for its Bionic A16 as per TSMC

TSMC’s 4nm process is the most preferred method of manufacturing chips today. Top brands such as MediaTek, Qualcomm, and Samsung have all switched to this process while making their new chips. Apple was expected to base its newest A16 chips on this process, however, the company is likely to opt for TSMC’s 5nm process.

TSMC’s Roadmap indicates Apple Bionic A16 chip will be based on the 5nm process

As per TSMC’s plans, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals that the Cupertino giant will be sticking to the 5nm process while making the A16 chip, the upcoming iPhone 14 Series will use chips based on the 5nm process. A recent claim was made by another tipster, ShrimpApplePro who claimed that the latest A16 chip will be powerful as it will have an upgraded CPU and GPU along with faster LPDDR5 RAM.

All reports indicate that the 4nm process is not any better than the 5nm one, however, any improvements are very minute and do not make much of a difference. This claim may not be accurate given that Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 plus has performed better as a result of adopting the 4nm technology.

The method uses the same fabrication level and it limits the generation’s potential performance and power efficiency advancements. The A15 chip offers 10% improved performance along with other efficiency improvements over the A14 processor even though it utilizes the same 5nm technology. In all likelihood, the upcoming A16 chip will make an appearance in only the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max versions. The remaining two models will feature the same A15 Bionic that we saw in the iPhone 13 Series.

As per recent reports, Apple is running behind schedule with the iPhone 14 Series and one of these models, the 14 Max mostly is delayed by up to 3 weeks and it is expected that the company will reveal the latest generation of iPhones in September.
