MediaTek develops first 3nm chip using TSMC process technology

Michail, 07 September 2023

MediaTek has successfully developed its first 3nm chipset based on TSMC’s 3nm process technology. The new 3nm chipset will make its commercial debut next year as a member of the flagship Dimensity series. The press release did not go into details regarding the new SoC, only shedding light on TSMC’s 3nm process which offers substantial gains over the outgoing 5nm N5 process.

It's not me, it's media...since Apple A7 they told us Apple was 2 years ahead... I understand since many how you can build a benchmark to give credits to some hardware. You've a dev? Compilation with Arm V9 should...

Not sure what the phones you've mentioned are unless they look similar in total design which I'm guessing you mean? Either way its not just phones Apple wants to increase their 3nm chip orderwith TSMC but their computer lineup as they...

I'm not so sure about that. I get the impression that neural processing is about the level of AI processing that can be done on the phone, which can be useful in some cases.
