Samsung, TSMC, and Intel are among the world’s largest chip manufacturers. Between them is a good set of manufacturing nodes, progressing toward more complex and transistor-density variants with each generation. In the near term, it is about, among other things, going down to 3nm, something that Samsung will now be the first to cross the finish line.
After mass production began in the second quarter of the year, the company announced that the first circuits had been delivered. This is used Universal gate transistor design (GAA) and at 3 nm should offer a performance increase of about 20 percent, compared to 5 nm. In addition, energy efficiency was improved by 50 percent, while circuit area was reduced by approximately 15 percent.
Samsung said in previous quarterly reports that it has customers from Europe and North America for the new operation. The manufacturing technology is expected to be suitable for the company’s next top model in the Exynos family, in the form of the Exynos 2300 chipset. Other possible options include the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 specifically for the Galaxy S23 family.
However, mobile phone manufacturers are not the first to use manufacturing technology. Instead, the first rounds of circles are devoted to cryptocurrency mining, where the most energy-efficient manufacturing technology is expected to provide a significant reduction in energy consumption.
