Taiwanese media: Apple monopolizes TSMC’s 5-nanometer capacity over 80%

TSMC’s 5-nanometer process is currently the most sought-after target in the science and technology industry. Apple’s 5-nanometer process chips can accommodate more transistors in the same space, which improves almost all aspects of performance. And next year, although many technology manufacturers plan to launch 5nm process, according to Taiwan Times News , Apple alone will monopolize more than 80% of TSMC’s 5nm process.

According to reports, Apple is expected to continue to use TSMC’s 5nm process in its self-designed Apple Silicon chips and the new generation of A15 chips. And after Apple moved to 5nm, the 7nm process capacity vacated by AMD accounted for more than 80%.

Also because the outside world estimates that TSMC’s production capacity will be tight next year, it is judged that TSMC’s revenue and profit will hit a record high.
