Apple and Intel will be the first to launch the 3nm chips Technology from TSMC. New information has revealed that the iPhone maker will launch its next generation of iPad Pro in 2022, with the latest technology, while Intel is also expected to release its chips using this advanced manufacturing process.
Based on information from Nikkei Asia, the Cupertino-based giant is to launch the world’s advanced contract chip manufacturing process technology in its iPad Pro model in 2022. The switch to 3nm from the current 5nm generation is expected to increase performance by 10-15%, as well as reduce power consumption by 25-30%. In other words, it makes improvements that could make the new iPad Pro, even more, powerful and efficient.
Interestingly, this also means that this would be the second time that Apple unveils its latest chipset in its new iPad Lineup, instead of their main iPhone Series. At the moment, it’s unclear whether the company will unveil its latest chipset along with its iPad Air or iPad Pro models next year. Likewise, it is expected that Intel also is one of the first to launch TSMC’s 3nm processing technology. This same information mentions that the chipmaker has already started testing their chip designs with the 3nm process.
In addition, the company is expected to start commercial production of the chips in the second half of next year. This means that the company intends to regain the ground lost in the chips market in recent years.
