Quick Summary AI Powered

June 30, 2022 11:12 AMSEOUL (BLOOMBERG) - Samsung Electronics kicked off mass production of 3-nanometer chips that are more powerful and efficient than predecessors, beating rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) to a key milestone in the race to build the most advanced chips in the world.

The Taiwanese firm accounts for more than half of the global foundry business by revenue and is the exclusive supplier of Apple's Silicon processors for iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and desktop Mac PCs.

Samsung will produce 3nm chips at its Hwaseong facilities and plans to extend that production to its newest Pyeongtaek fab.
