TSMC celebrates 3nm chips in Taiwan as it quietly expands to the US

The second part of the famous phrase “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China” is under the watchful eye of many. As we have said on other occasions, it is risky to centralize production too much. Not because of the type of government that exists in China, but because of any unforeseen situation, such as a blackout or a natural disaster, puts the supply chain at risk,

That’s exactly what happened during the first months of 2020 and is still affecting production. and that’s one reason Companies like Apple want to diversify production And companies like TSMC, the biggest chip maker for the Cupertino company, are looking to expand. Although in secret.

A celebration to relieve stress, however more than appropriate

The situation in Taiwan is critical. China considers it part of its territory, while other nations, very few, consider it an independent country. Taiwan’s technological importance has been due, among other variables, to Great tension between the Asian giant and the tiny island on its shores, Military manoeuvres, comments and other tug-of-war are revealing a peculiar situation.

in this context it fits TSMC will open a plant in Arizona to make future Apple chips, among others. A plant that plans to start its activity in 2024 and will be accompanied by a second plant that will do so in 2026. Meanwhile, in its own backyard, TSMC has officially celebrated the arrival of 3nm mass production.

As noted in Focus Taiwan (via 9to5mac), this type of function is not common. Analysts believe that such a move Helps to reduce the tension caused by its expansion in the United States (whose investments already stand at $40,000 million) and wants to highlight its commitment to the island.

“Market analysts speculate that the company is holding the ceremony to convey its intention to continue with Taiwan as a research, development and production hub, despite its overseas investments.”

A wise move by the company that fits well with the fact that, although 4nm manufacturing will begin in Arizona, 3nm is already starting in Taiwan and is expected to reach 2nm in 2025. Thus, futures M2 Pro and M2 Max Coming to Mac in 2023 They will certainly come from Taiwan, as they symbolically celebrated recently.
