Leading semiconductor companies Samsung and TSMC are vying to develop “2-nanometer” processing circuits, which will power the upcoming generation of data centers, cellphones, and artificial intelligence.
Samsung and TSMC mass production of the first 2 nm chip details
Experts maintain that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company will command a hegemonic position in the global market, but Samsung Electronics and Intel perceive an opportunity to outpace the sector’s next big development.
A number of TSMC’s largest clients, including Apple and Nvidia, have already seen the results of the process testing conducted on its “N2” (or 2 nanometer) prototypes. TSMC is the industry leader in the processor market worldwide.
According to sources, US chipmaker Qualcomm plans to integrate Korean tech giant’s “SF2” semiconductor into its upcoming high-end smartphone CPUs. The company’s fortunes would drastically change when Qualcomm switched the majority of its flagship mobile processors from Samsung’s 4 nanometer technology to TSMC’s version.
