TSMC 5nm process is finally shipping
TSMC 5nm process is finally shipping on a large scale, which means Apple’s A14, Kirin 1000 series have Snapdragon 875 and other new generations of chips rumored to use TSMC’s 5nm process will begin mass production.
In a recent meeting, TSMC said that compared to 7nm, 5nm has a 15% performance improvement, and 30% performance improvement at the process level reduced power consumption.
This means that even with the same architecture, the 5nm process will deliver a 15% increase in performance and lower power consumption. The Apple A14 and Kirin 1000 series chips should improve performance even more significantly, considering the architectural changes.
As for the Snapdragon 875, it’s still a mystery, as the latest rumors suggest it uses Samsung’s 5nm process to build it, rather than TSMC’s 5nm process. but some sources also insist that the Snapdragon 875 will be built on TSMC’s process, using Samsung’s 5nm process It’s a different chip called Snapdragon 875G.
But anyway, the Snapdragon 865 Plus has surpassed 3GHz, and the Snapdragon 875 is theoretically on the main clock There will be further enhancements, as well as more powerful performance.
