TSMC to Begin Mass Production of 3-Nanometer Chips

TSMC is leading the race to make chips with ever-smaller circuits.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has revealed plans to hold a ceremony to celebrate the start of mass production using its 3-nanometer process technology.

3-Nanometer ChipsTSMC is leading the race to make chips with ever-smaller circuits.

Circuit widths on chips are measured in nanometers, which are one-billionth of a meter. Smaller circuits translate to faster and more power-efficient semiconductors.

High-end central processing units and graphics processors are the biggest users of the smallest-node chips. TSMC’s customers include Apple (AAPL), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Nvidia (NVDA) and more.

The start of 3-nanometer chips production at TSMC comes amid a slowdown in sales of devices that would use those chips, namely PCs, smartphones and servers.

Taiwan Semiconductor’s current state-of-the-art chips use 5-nanometer process technology.
