TSMC 3nm: Can you imagine a Pentium 4 the size of a pin?

Intel has long since lost the train of miniaturization of transistors, largely due to problems in the transition from 14nm to 10nm, which of course has given AMD the opportunity to return to the top of the market. However, unlike Intel, AMD does not have its own production lines, having sold them many moons ago, giving rise to what is now Global Foundries.

That said, when GloFo also failed to keep up with market trends, AMD turned to TSMC, one of the largest and best semi-conductor manufacturers on the planet. What you don't know, gave rise to the excellent Ryzen 3000 based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture.

Well, 7nm is already part of the past, since TSMC already has 5nm lines ready to produce! Incidentally, Apple already has the vast majority of the capabilities of these lines contracted for iPhone 12 SoCs. However, if you think things are over here … You are very wrong.

3nm from TSMC: Can you imagine a Pentium 4 the size of a pin?

<p>So TSMC is already working hard on 3nm production technology! Can you imagine taking an old Pentium 4, and putting it the size of a pinhead? Yeah … That's what 3nm can offer! To get a sense of evolution, TSMC's 3nm are able to put 250 million transistors per mm².</p><div class='code-block code-block-6' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

After all, the TSMC CEO has just confirmed that the development of the 3nm node is fulfilling all stages in the expected timing. With the start of production scheduled for 2021, and mass production scheduled for the second half of 2022.

However, the 3nm process is expected to bring 10 ~ 15% speed improvements, in addition to a 25 ~ 30% energy efficiency increase.

TSMC 3nm: Can you imagine a Pentium 4 the size of a pin?

Since I was very young I became interested in computers and technology in general, I had my first PC at 10 and at 15 I built my first tower, since then I never stopped. Whatever technology is, I'm in the front row to find out more.
