We have announced to you that the Kirin 1020 processor, which will power the Huawei Mate 40 series, is planned to be manufactured with a 5 nm fabrication process . Another brand with which the eyes are on this subject: Apple with iPhone 12 series .
Apple's iPhone 12 series, which will be introduced in September, will be powered by the A14 Bionic processor. According to industry sources, the TSMC, which will produce the Apple A14 Bionic processor, has completed its preparations for the 5 nm fabrication process .
A-series processors usually enter the production line in May – June , so we can say that the last changes were made. TSMC has been producing Apple A series processors since 2016 and continues to improve its production line day by day. With the transition to a lower nm, the performance of the devices increases while a significant advantage is obtained in terms of power consumption .
If we look back;
Apple A10: 16nm
Apple A11: 10nm
Apple A12: 7nm
Apple A13: 7nm +
TSMC announced last year that Apple has invested $ 25 billion in 5 nm production technology to continue to be a custom processor supplier. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will be released in September with four iPhone 12 models with 5G support, one 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inch and one 6.7-inch.
