Samsung''s 3nm GAA operation is expected to start mass production soon, and it will be presenting its next-generation technology to US President Joe Biden this week.
Samsung might be attempting to persuade Biden to permit US businesses to sell the manufacturer orders for its 3nm GAA process.
According to Yonhap, US President Joe Biden would take a three-day tour to Samsung''s Pyeongtaek facility, which is also world''s largest and is located 70 kilometers south of Seoul. Alongside Biden, Samsung Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong is said to accompany him on his tour to demonstrate the next-generation mass production process.
Samsung''s 3nm Gate-All-Around (GAA) technology has now begun mass-production, surpassing its 4nm node, which was used to mass-production Qualcomm''s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. One official who claims to have knowledge of Samsung''s advanced chip manufacturing technology said the following regarding the Korean behemoths strategy.
To underscore Taiwan''s TSMC, Samsung might send a 3-nm chip to Biden.
The benefits of the 3nm GAA are huge over the Samsungs 5nm process, with the company claiming that it allows for a 35 percent increase in size while achieving a 30 percent increase in performance and power savings. For the most part, the Taiwanese manufacturer has been a dominant figure in the global foundry market.
According to TrendForce, TSMC added 52.1 percent of the global foundry market for the fourth quarter of 2021, while Samsung, who came in second place, was trailing significantly with a mere 18.3 percent market share for the same period. A previous survey claimed that the Korean manufacturer was very debating about its 3nm GAA process, as the yield rate was apparently worsethan its 4nm technology.
If Samsung fails to improve these yields while also demonstrating that its 3nm GAA process rivals those of the TSMC 3nm wafers, it may not receive orders from Qualcomm and others. Samsung is expected to begin mass-production of its advanced chip technology soon, so we will see how it differs from what TSMC brings to the table.
