Even though Intel’s claims it would be locking down TSMC’s nanometer (3nm) chip manufacture, Apple freshly publicised otherwise as the tech giant’s roadmap shows it hopping forward of Intel with Mac and iPhone chips launching as soon as possible most probably before 2023.
According to rumours, the 3 nm could feature as many as four dies, with up to 40 CPU cores in total per chip. There will be three versions of the third generation chip that will allegedly be codenamed Ibiza, Lobos and Palma.
Apple is rumoured to have started working on the second and third generations of Mac chips, which are anticipated to thrive the M1 which is also recognised as the first Mac processor urbanised by Apple once it moved away from Intel’s. According to the sources from the info. These sources also assert that Apple’s processors will be capable to outperform Intel’s own chips for consumer PCs.
Truly Intel is struggling in the current market
Rumours regarding the TSMC 3nm manufacturing procedure being approved by both Apple and Intel first occurred this year, though the original report clearly states that they will be ready for mass manufacturing in 2022. Firstly, sources from both Nikkei Asia and within Intel specified that the concluding had credited out the superior volume of chips.
Surprisingly now with rumours of Apple set to proclamation its products iPad, MacBook, and iPhones with second and third-generation chips comprised, this could enchantment concern for Intel.
No doubt Intel has already been having trouble keeping up production with Asian manufacturers such as TSMC and Samsung. The US firm struggled with the production of 7nm production process, let only 5nm or 3nm and in its place is enforced to trust on chips built by those same competitors. It also set the delay of the next generation Sapphire Rapids Xeon chips, which are based on 10nm technology.
