TSMC abandons the 3nm process because it is too expensive for Apple to use

TSMC's 3nm process is very advanced, but now it's hitting a point where no customers are using it. Some time ago, Intel canceled the 3nm order with TSMC and finally chose the 5nm process. Next, Apple seems to have shaken TSMC's 3nm process. The reason is not that TSMC's 3nm process is not good, but because it is too expensive. Industry chain sources said that because TSMC's 3nm process is too expensive, there are basically no customers at present. TSMC has abandoned the 3nm process and shifted its focus to the N3E process, which is cheaper. TSMC plans to achieve mass production of the N3E process in the second half of 2023. At present, the use of TSMC's 3nm process is relatively narrow, and it is only suitable for customers who have strong investment capabilities and pursue new processes. To put it bluntly, they are rich customers. Even Apple thinks it is expensive, I am afraid it is difficult to find other customers. #Apple# #TSMC# (8003130)
