The latest reports revealed new details about AMD’s move to Samsung as an alternative to TSMC, with the aim of developing distinctive chips with a 3 nanometer manufacturing accuracy.
TSMC is one of the largest manufacturers of processor chips in the world, so it was the first choice for many chip designers in the world, and Apple is TSMC’s first customer.
AMD is also among TSMC’s customers during the last period, but the coming years may include some changes, as the latest reports confirm AMD’s upcoming plans to move to Samsung to develop distinctive chips with 3 nanometer manufacturing accuracy.
And TSMC made a decision last August to raise prices by 20%, while Apple faces a price increase of only 3%, and Apple was able in the last period to announce two new chips, M1 Pro and M1 Max, despite the decline in the world in chip production. .
Expectations indicate that other companies are not satisfied with TSMC’s focus on Apple supplies, and AMD is among these companies, so this reason may push it to switch to Samsung, in addition to TSMC’s focus on supplying the bulk of the distinctive chips with 3 nanometer manufacturing accuracy. for Apple in the coming years.
It is noteworthy that the cooperation of AMD and Samsung has already begun on the upcoming Samsung Exynos 2200 processor chip, which includes the chip card from AMD.
