Recently, apple A14 chip photo was exposed on the Internet. Judging from the number on the chip, the production time should be the 16th week of 2020, which means that A14 chip has been produced in April this year. According to previous reports, the A14 chip adopts 5nm process technology and will be carried on iPhone 12 series mobile phones. It is worth mentioning that TSMC is the only manufacturer that manufactures A14 chipsets on a contract basis.
TSMC will launch A14 chips for the iPhone 12 series by the end of June to ensure that Apple’s new phones can be launched as planned, according to ePrice, a Taiwanese media report. But according to foreign media MarketWatch, the release of the iPhone 12 series is likely to be delayed until late October.
at present, the iPhone 11 series mobile phones carry A13 chip, which adopts 7Nm process technology. The number of transistors per square millimeter is 96.5 million, and the total number of transistors on the chip is 8.5 billion. The new A14 chip adopts 5nm process technology, and the number of transistors per square millimeter is 171.3 million, and the total number of transistors reaches 15 billion. It has better performance and lower energy consumption.
