TSMC demonstrated the powerful 5nm chip, which was used in iPhone this year

TSMC, the OEM of Apple hardware products, introduced some performance or power consumption improvements in the manufacturing process of its latest 5-nanometer process chip. It is expected that such 5-nanometer chip will be used in Apple’s flagship product iPhone 12 this year. According to legend, A14 is Apple’s first chipset product based on TSMC’s 5-nm process technology, which will improve the performance or efficiency of Apple’s iPhone. Jason cross of media Macworld estimates that the iPhone 12 has the same computing power as the 15 inch MacBook Pro. At its annual technical seminar, TSMC gave a digital description of the extent to which its 5-nm process technology can improve the performance of apple chips. Based on these figures, AnandTech, a well-known hardware evaluation website, provides a chart of chip improvements. < / P > < p > the A13 chipset currently used for iPhone 11 is based on TSMC 7-nm process technology, which will be reduced by 30%. < p > < p > according to AnandTech, TSMC has started mass production of 5-nm process technology chipsets. Apple’s next-generation A14 processor is expected to be one of the first chip products produced by TSMC using this advanced technology. < p > < p > TSMC is still moving towards 3-nanometer process technology, which may reduce power consumption by 25% to 30% and improve performance by 10% to 15% compared with 5-nanometer technology. TSMC’s 3-nanometer technology chip is expected to enter the production stage in the second half of 2022. < / P > < p > of course, these numbers represent only the improvement of hardware level. Apple may further optimize IOS to accommodate these hardware upgrades. < / P > < p > Apple is expected to launch four iPhone products in 2020, namely, the iPhone 12 with 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch displays, and the iPhone 12 pro with 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch displays. All of these models will have 5g features. Science Discovery
