Samsung is said to have finally received the green light and will begin mass production of its third-generation 4nm chips in the near future. According to Business Korea, the company has successfully stabilized the performance results of the chipset for advanced performance technology while reducing the power consumption it uses.
Samsung plans to mass produce 4nm chips at the end of the first half of 2023, that is, in about three months.
Coming from the GSM Arena, Samsung previously struggled to manage the results of 4nm chips in the first generation, after Samsung finally lost its biggest customer, Qualcomm, who decided to get the chips from TSMC. However, it is reported that Samsung has started to steadily increase the production of its 4nm chips from 2022, and the yield of Samsung’s 4nm process is about 60%. These results are very fast.
Currently, although the most advanced semiconductor processing technology is currently running on the 3nm process, mainstream products still often use chips with 4nm and 5nm processes. Samsung itself has a 4nm factory located in Texas to operate from the second half of 2024.
