It news: CEO of tiktok resigns, TSMC announces a number of advanced manufacturing processes

On August 27, Kevin Mayer, chief executive of tiktok, who had been in office for less than 100 days, announced his resignation. Byte beat officials said they respect Kevin’s decision and thank him for his efforts for tiktok. After Kevin Mayer’s resignation, tiktok’s current general manager, Vanessa Pappas, will serve as interim head. In an open letter, Zhang Yiming, founder of byte skipping, said, “we are moving quickly to find solutions to the problems we face globally, especially in the United States and India. While I can’t disclose the details, I can assure you that we are working on solutions that are in the interests of users, partners and employees. ” < / P > < p > according to the latest disclosure by Jon Prosser, the face ID of iPhone 12 Pro has been further optimized, and the recognition angle is wider. For example, even if the mobile phone is flat on the desktop, it can quickly and accurately identify the unlocking, which improves the available scenarios again. However, Jon Prosser revealed that the true depth size of the buried face ID remains unchanged. However, as the screen becomes larger and narrower, it is visually smaller. After the screen becomes larger, the status bar on both sides of the bangs is also widened, which means that more information indicator icons can be accommodated, which means that the percentage of electricity that can be stored is permanent. < / P > < p > in other aspects, it is reported that the rear camera module of iPhone 12 Pro has increased by 10%, and the flat middle frame similar to iPhone 4 has been used on the side. < p > < p > according to the latest data of Gartner, the global smartphone sales in the second quarter of 2020 will drop by 20.4%, and only 295 million units will be shipped in the world. The main problem, of course, is the epidemic. With the closure of physical stores during this period, people’s desire for consumption has declined, resulting in a sharp drop in mobile phone sales in the second quarter of 2020. < / P > < p > among the top five smartphone manufacturers, Gartner said that Samsung’s sales fell the most in Q2, with 54.75 million units shipped, down 27.1% compared with the same period in 2019; while Apple’s smartphone sales had the least impact, with a total of 38.38 million iPhones shipped, down only 0.4% year-on-year. This may be because the price of the new iPhone se is relatively low, the cost of replacing the phone is reduced, and the domestic epidemic situation has been controlled in the same period, and the economic recovery has also enabled apple to recover some sales. However, according to Gartner, China’s smartphone sales fell by 7% in the second quarter of 2020, with a total shipment of nearly 94 million units. On the other hand, India, which has adopted a radical blockade, fell 46% in the quarter. In the 26th technical seminar, TSMC confirmed that 5nm and 6nm have entered the stage of mass production, and 3nm and 4nm plan to be trial produced in the first year and mass production in the following year. TSMC has also upgraded 12NM, and the new process node is named n12e. The green logo is outstanding and energy consumption is excellent. There are two generations of TSMC’s 5nm process planning, namely N5 and n5p, in which N5 is determined to introduce EUV technology and has been in mass production. As an improved version of n5p, it is still under development. It is planned to mass produce in 2021. Compared with the first generation of 5nm, the power consumption of n5p will be reduced by 10% and the performance will be improved by 5%. It is said that n5p is optimized for high-performance computing platform. < / P > < p > in addition to the announcement of 5nm and 6nm processes, TSMC also brings more news about 4nm, 3nm and 4nm. 3nm is the natural iteration of 5nm process, which can reduce power consumption by 25-30% and improve performance by 10-15%; 4nm is theoretically the ultimate improved version of 5nm. < / P > < p > 4nm is scheduled for risk trial production later in 2020 and mass production in 2022; 3nm is also planned to carry out risk trial production later in 2020, and large-scale production is planned in 2022. < p > < p > TSMC’s 12NM n12e will replace 22ull, resulting in 76% increase in logic density, 49% increase in frequency at a given power consumption, 55% reduction in power consumption under qualitative energy, and 50% reduction in SRAM size. The supported VDD voltage can reach 0.4V, which can perfectly adapt to IOT devices. TSMC plans n12e to serve 5g processor, baseband, wireless headset, smart watch, VR, wearable device, entry-level SOC and other scene services. < p > < p > Apple’s share price hit a new high this week, with a market value of more than $2 trillion. Then a well-known analyst said that Apple’s share price is more than that, and Apple will usher in more historic breakthroughs this year. Thanks to the launch of the 5g version of the iPhone 12 and Apple’s home office, Apple’s share price will reach a new high, according to Tom forte, a leading analyst at D.A. Davidson. “What’s striking to me is that Apple has achieved a market value of $2 trillion without selling a 5g phone,” says Mr fuldt. As long as 5g iPhone can bring positive effect to Apple’s performance, the future rising trend of Apple’s stock price will still be in a positive upward channel. ” On August 25, Xunlei released the second quarter’s unaudited financial report as of June 30, 2020.
