TSMC: the first 3nm chips will come next year, 2nm chips by 2025

TSMC 3 nm chips coming in 2023, the 2 nm chips will come only by 2025


The company also revealed some details on the 2 nm node. According to them, the upcoming node will boost performance by 10 percent to 15 percent at the same power draw. They will bring a 25 percent to 30 percent lower consumption at the same frequency and transistor count, compared to the N3E node. The N2 will increase chip density over N3E by 1.1 times. TSMC alto took the opportunity to introduce GAAFETs (namely, gate-all-around field-effect transistors). The new nanosheet transistors will increase performance per watt by reducing resistance.


We’ve been used to seeing new manufacturing processes being introduced every year. However, it seems that there will be a gap in 2024, where the companies will stick with more efficient versions of the 3 nm process.


For a quick comparison, Samsung Foundy will be mass-producing 3 nm chips in 2022. Similarly, its 2 nm chips will enter production in 2025.
