Apple’s most powerful chip is the M1 manufactured by TSMC using its 5nm process node
Thanks to the pandemic, there has been a serious chip shortage affecting the availability of chips for smartphones, tablets, and automobiles. Earlier this week, vehicle producers Daimler AG and Jaguar Land Rover said that their production will be hampered by the chip shortage. We’re talking about some serious numbers here as Jaguar Land Rover said that their deliveries in the second quarter will be half the amount previously expected.
Last month we passed along the rumor that TSMC plans on starting risk production of 4nm chips next quarter. The next big change is expected to take place next year when TSMC starts volume production of chips using its 3nm process node.
