7Nm technology is difficult to upgrade in the future: chip design / foundry cost increase exaggerated

The foundries will produce 40 thousand wafers a month, which cost between 15 billion and 20 billion dollars.

Before 14nm, every 18 months, the progress of the next generation process, the sex price increased by 30%, however, after entering 14nm, this trend is almost invisible.

So, GF's chief technology officer, Gary Patton, says, looking ahead, 7Nm will be a long-standing node, because 5nm/3nm may be difficult to achieve a better balance of power, performance, area, and cost.

At present, the only way to announce the progress of 3nm is Samsung, who plans to deliver the v0.01 version of PDK in 2019 and trial production in 2021.
