TSMC will start mass production of 2nm chips in 2025, with Apple and Intel among the first clients said to use the latest semiconductor technology.
If you watched Apple’s “Peek Performance” special event this week, then there’s no question you witnessed the unveiling of the company’s brand new M1 Ultra chip.
Work on an Apple Car autopilot chip module and other custom chips should be completed in 2023 after having been underway for almost a year.
The upcoming Apple M2 chips are reportedly arriving in lower-end Macs in 2022, to be followed by the more powerful M2 Pro and M2 Max versions in higher-end systems in 2023. As for the third-generation M3 chips, those should follow 18 months after M2.
As Intel's new CEO makes it a top priority to win back Apple's business, the iPhone maker is apparently developing successors to the company's inaugural Mac chip, the M1.
Apple is nuking Intel chips in Macs out of orbit, and the chipmaker is obviously unhappy about it. But according to Intel's optimistic CEO, the company will try to win back Apple's business.
iPhones and Macs releasing in 2022 may make a jump from Apple's current five-nanometer chips to new ones built with TSMC's upcoming three-nanometer process technology.
Apple's upcoming 2022 iPad Pro models will use chips built on TSMC's cutting-edge three-nanometer manufacturing process, resulting in a speed boost and lower power consumption.
Samsung is reportedly looking to hire Apple's and AMD's former silicon engineers to help it create a custom CPU after shuttering its in-house semiconductor team recently.
Replacing Intel chips with Apple's in-house silicon in the Mac computers is a two-year transition that could complete, according to a well-informed source, as early as next year.
The next Mac Pro update planned for 2022 will use next-generation Apple silicon providing up to 128 GPU cores fast enough to replace AMD parts used in the current Intel-based models.
Apple is reportedly gearing up to launch a new high-end model of its beloved MacBook Air by the end of 2021, with the upcoming notebook ostensibly running next-generation Apple silicon.
