TSMC announces $120 billion investment to build 3nm chip factories

With the world becoming more dependent on technology and computing by the day, there is a huge demand for semiconductors. Among the chipmakers, we have Samsung and TSMC that seek to win new consumers and keep current ones in an extremely fierce market.

A few weeks ago, Samsung announced an investment of US$ 355 billion (~R$ 1.8 trillion) that could put the South Korean as the biggest chipmaker in the world. However, TSMC has announced a new strategy to stay on top, after confirming that it is ready to start production of 3nm chips.

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has announced an investment of US$ 120 billion (~R$ 618 billion). Of this amount, US$ 40 billion will be used to build four chip factories in Tainan. According to Nikkei Asiathey will focus on the production of 3 nanometer processors, which are expected to hit the market in late 2022.

Nikkei Asia also says that TSMC and Samsung are already negotiating with AMD, Apple, NVIDIA, Qualcomm and MediaTek for 3nm chips using Gate ALl Around (GAA) technology, faster than 4nm processors. Recently, rumors have suggested that the mass manufacturing of the Apple M2 Pro will start soon.
