TSMC is delivering record results day after day, with a 5 nm manufacturing process starting High Volume Manufacturing (HVM) in Q2 next year, 7 nm process getting plenty of orders and the fact that TSMC just became the biggest company publicly trading in Asia. Continuing with the goal to match or even beat the famous Moore's Law, TSMC is already planning for future 3 nm node manufacturing, promised to start HVM as soon as 2022 arrives, according to JK Wang, TSMC's senior vice president of fab operations. Delivering 3 nm a whole year before originally planned in 2023, TSMC is working hard, with fab construction work doing quite well, judging by all the news that the company is releasing recently.

We can hope to see the first wave of products built using 3 nm manufacturing process sometime around end of year 2022, when the holiday season arrives. Usual customers like Apple and HiSilicon will surely utilize the new node and deliver their smartphones with 3 nm processors inside as soon as the process is ready for HVM.
 
Such great news. That should also be good news for companies like AMD. 

Specs: AMD Ryzen 9 3950X,  Corsair MP600 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero,  Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    interesting ..... sounds like they are dedicating plenty of resources to the new fab plant
     
    Do you think at this size that AMD is likely to stick with chiplets design ?

    Probably, will still be cheaper and increase yields to make the core at the new process node while having the larger IO die on an older cheaper process that doesn't scale as well with a die shrink. Plus having the IO die made at Global Foundries is fulfilling AMD's contract with them on processors made per year. A few years ago AMD amended the language in the contract to basically include that processors as a whole(no matter how many chiplets or IO dies) would count as one order toward their agreement.(Glo Flo was like sure, thinking they were getting more die's per CPU, LOL. AMD was just making sure if Glo flo failed at 7nm they could go a different direction, which ended up actually happening)
     
    Every Ryzen, Epyc and Threadripper sold is fulfilling AMD's agreement with Global Foundries while using TSMC's 7nm node simultaneously.
     
    If just using TSMC AMD would have to pay penalties to Glo Flo for not enough orders per year, which they have paid in the past when FX sales were terrible and was cheaper to pay penalties vs actually producing CPU's that wouldn't sell.

    If you look at the time line for 12nm to 7nm in actual chips - moores law is dead... and has been for awhile.

    Don’t get me wrong - TSMC is going past what was thought possible... but only barely and with herculean effort. They’ve put a timeline for 3nm on the board, we’ll see how that actually works out soon enough.

    (Referring to cpu / gpu in desktop. Mobile space is well adopted 7nm)

    I used to mine. Now I compute.
