It is rumored that the Miaolong 985 processor will be used for the first time in the ultra-violet lithography (EUV) process to design IC layout more accurately and further improve performance.
According to previous reports, it is planned to start mass production of 5nm chips in the first quarter of next year. Preliminary data show that the number of transistors will increase by 1.8 times and the performance will increase by 15% compared with 7Nm transistors.
In addition, there are reports thatQualcomm's next-generation flagship chip, Yuelong 865, will be manufactured by Samsung OEM instead of TSMC and will be manufactured by 7Nm EUV technology.
Section 2019 for this yearIPhoneA13 processors with 7Nm process will continue to be used, and routine upgrades should be made to basic specifications such as performance and AI.
It is not yet clear how much upgrade 5nm will bring.But last year, when Apple launched 7 nm, Apple will be ahead of its competitors in processing technology for some time.
