“Bloomberg” recently reported that the chip manufacturer TSMC’s plant in Arizona, USA, originally announced that it would use 5nm process technology, but now it has decided to switch to a more advanced 4nm process technology, and even the production capacity will be 20,000 more than originally expected. The wafer is higher, and the specific arrangement is expected to be announced at the groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday.
It is reported that TSMC has invested US$12 billion in the Arizona factory project. US President Biden, Secretary of Commerce Raimondo, Apple CEO Tim Cook, AMD CEO Lisa Su and NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang will all attend the groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday. It is pointed out that this 4nm chip production line is only the first step, and TSMC will build a new production line nearby in the future, using 3nm process technology to produce movies.
The report mentioned that Apple will become the main customer of TSMC’s new plant, contracting a third of the total production capacity. These 4nm process processors will be used in devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Macs. Since the new plant will not be officially put into production until 2024, these chips will certainly not appear in new machines that will be launched next year.
