Apple, Huawei and AMD are almost the three most active companies in the current purely designed Fables chip enterprises, with 7nm all being the main players. According to the latest news, TSMC 5nm yield has climbed to 50%, is expected to be the fastest in the first quarter of next year mass production, the initial monthly production capacity of 50,000 pieces, and then will gradually increase to 7 to 80,000 pieces. The first batch of 5nm consumer products currently disclosed include Apple A14, Heath Kirin 1000 series, etc. , which are said to have been tested in September.
As for AMD, the Zen 4 architecture processor is also 5nm, the first big probability will be handed over to the fourth generation EPYC Dragon processor, codenamed “Genoa” (Genoa), as soon as 2021.
According to TSMC’s official data, compared to 7nm (first generation DUV), the new 5nm chip based on the Cortex A72 core offers 1.8 x more logic density, 15% faster speed, or a 30% reduction in power consumption, and the same process Is SRAM excellent and reduced in area.
In addition, thanks to the adoption of the SnapSnapdragon 865, TSMC’s 7nm DUV will continue to hand over its glossy transcripts in the traditional off-season next spring.
