For the 5-nanometer process, Wei Zhejia was revealed at the time that mass production would start at the end of 2019 or early 2020.
Currently, TSMC has a leading position in the 7-nanometer process and has obtained a large number of orders from various manufacturers. Its latest integrated fan-out package (InFO) technology has been approved by Apple to enable it to acquire the next generation.iPhoneProcessor orders.
In the second half of this year, TSMC will also manufacture the latest chips for Huawei, AMD, and Nvidia, and foreign media also reported recently that Qualcomm's next generation of Xiaolong 800 series processors will also use TSMC's 7-nm process. , And many years ago, Qualcomm this series of processors are handed over to Samsung foundry.
However, compared with the CPU, the graphics processor will be adopted later in the latest chip technology. The graphics processor manufactured using the 7-nanometer technology is expected to enter the market in 2019. Nvidia will adopt the 12-nanometer technology of TSMC in the near future. The upcoming next-generation graphics processor, the graphics processor using TSMC's 7-nanometer process may have to wait for some time.
