According to Business Times, TSMC will begin mass production of 3nm chips for Apple by the end of 2022. The M2 Pro will be the first batch of new products made using TSMC’s 3nm process.
Previously, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman mentioned that Apple’s next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro and high-end Mac mini will be equipped with M2 Pro chips. These new Macs will be released at the end of this year or early next year.
In addition, the A17 bionic chip and M3 chip designed for next year’s iPhone 15 Pro will also use the 3nm process. Next year’s MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro will feature the M3 chip.
For the iPhone and Mac, Apple’s upgrade from TSMC’s 5nm to 3nm process means faster chip performance and lower power consumption. At present, Apple has completed the conversion from Intel chips to self-developed chips, except for Mac Pro and high-end Mac mini, which do not provide Apple chip versions.
