Samsung Foundry is chasing TSMC, the yield of the 3nm process has increased significantly, although it still lags behind the Taiwanese competitionTSMC so far remains the undisputed leader among electronic microcircuit manufacturers. Their 3nm technological process is used, among others, to produce Apple A17 Pro systems. Samsung, as one of the largest competitors of the Taiwanese company, also has similar technology, but uses a more modern GAA transistor design. Despite this, the Koreans did not gain market dominance because the yield from their process was quite poor. But now the situation is changing.

Samsung Foundry is chasing TSMC. The Korean company managed to increase the yield of chips in the 3 nm technological process by two to even three times. This may have to do with the recent change in the name of lithography from 3nm to 2nm.

Samsung is changing the name for its 3nm process. This suggests that it is a 2 nm process

Samsung Foundry’s 3nm lithography process has previously had yields of 10 to 20%, depending on the specific chip design. According to sources, the Korean company has implemented many advanced improvements, thanks to which the yield has now increased to the range of 30-60%. Still, this remains below the achievements of the industry leader, which achieves yields of around 70% in the N3 process. Prospects for making up for losses relative to TSMC also look miserable, because this company currently produces 100,000 pieces of silicon wafers per month exclusively in the N3 process.

Samsung and Arm join forces to work on chips made using the 2nm process

We recently reported that Samsung changed the name of the technological process from 3 nm to 2 nm, although this did not actually change the actual size of the silicon wafer. Currently names lithography have little to do with the actual dimensions of the transistor gate. Nevertheless, it seems that this information is related, and the Koreans want to give marketing a second chance to the improved process. Especially since the GAA transistor design offers much greater possibilities than the end-of-life FinFET. Undoubtedly, Samsung wants to regain large customers, including: such as NVIDIA and Qualcomm.
