Samsung rival TSMC building four new 3nm semiconductor chip plants


Last updated: June 20th, 2022 at 09:07 UTC+02:00

Since the world’s reliance on technology and computing is increasing each day, semiconductor chips are in great demand. Samsung and TSMC are the world’s biggest chip manufacturing brands, competing fiercely to gain new customers and retain the existing ones.

A few weeks ago, Samsung announced a massive investment plan of around $355 billion that could help it overthrow TSMC as the world’s biggest chip fabrication firm. However, to counter those moves, TSMC has announced an investment of around $120 billion. As a part of that plan, the Taiwanese firm is building four new fabs worth $10 billion each in Taiwan.

According to Nikkei Asia, all four new fabrication plants are intended for 3nm chips. Both TSMC and Samsung Foundry are trying to attract AMD, Apple, Nvidia, Qualcomm, and MediaTek with their advanced nodes, including 3nm and 5nm. Both firms are already manufacturing 4nm chips.

Samsung Foundry and TSMC have announced their plans to manufacture 3nm chips later this year. By 2025, both firms are planning to mass-produce 2nm chips. While Samsung is bringing advanced GAA technology with its 3nm process, TSMC will bring it with its 2nm process. Only time will tell which brand will be the market leader.
