Apple is already looking forward to 2nm processors

Apple is preparing to use chips made by the 2nm process in its Mac computers, although it will not be available in recent years.

With the continuous progress of the times, advanced semiconductor technology is also gradually developing. Although Apple missed the opportunity to use the 3nm process this year, the next 3nm and 2nm processes will achieve a stable transition.

Apple has its own SoC design team to design CPUs for iPhone, Mac, and iPad, and manufacture them by TSMC.

Progress doesn't always go according to plan, though. Apple processors like the M1 and A15 are made on a 5nm process, and the company hopes to transition to a 3nm process this year, but the odds are that TSMC has not been able to solve the mass production problem in the second half of this year, even if it is now ready for mass production It is too late, so the new M2 and A16 still use an enhanced version of the 5nm process, and it is expected that the follow-up M3 will be Apple's first product to use the 3nm process.

Apple has already begun to actively prepare 2nm chips, hopes to strengthen cooperation with TSMC to apply new nodes for its internally developed processors, and plans to enter mass production in 2025.

Of course, even if Apple's chips fail to achieve the Great Leap Forward, they are not far behind. According to Apple, the performance of the A16 in the iPhone 14 Pro is 33% stronger than that of the iPhone 11 Pro Max, 40% stronger than that of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, and the battery life is longer, and the chips using the 2nm process in the future are also worth looking forward to.
