MediaTek’s 3nm Chip: A Latecomer to the Game

MediaTek’s Choice of N3E Process

MediaTek has announced its first 3nm smartphone chip, but it is already behind Apple, which is already manufacturing its own 3nm chip and will release it with the iPhone 15 series soon.

The reason for the delay is that Apple has priority at TSMC, the chip manufacturer. TSMC offers two 3nm processes: N3 (N3B) with more transistors and N3E, focused on power and performance. MediaTek picked N3E, which is rare for mobile chips.

MediaTek’s Intel partnership also leaves questions about its semiconductor plans. Intel is not as advanced as TSMC in terms of chip manufacturing, so it is unclear when MediaTek’s first Intel-based chips will be available.

In short, MediaTek’s 3nm chip is a remarkable achievement, but it is late to the game. It remains to be seen how the chip will perform compared to Apple’s 3nm chip and whether MediaTek’s Intel partnership will be successful.

Behind the scenes – China’s Will to take over TSMC: A Major Threat

China’s possibility of getting its hands on TSMC factories is a major threat to the global chip supply chain. If China takes over TSMC, it will gain access to the company’s most advanced semiconductor manufacturing technology. This would give China a significant advantage in the global chip market and could disrupt the supply of chips to the West.

The disruption in the supply of chips could lead to global economic ripple effects, resulting in increased prices and shortages of necessary products for companies like Apple and the West’s tech industry.

The West must take steps to prevent China from gaining control of TSMC. This could include imposing sanctions on China or providing financial assistance to TSMC to help it resist a Chinese takeover.

China’s possible takeover of TSMC factories is a major threat to the global chip supply chain. The West must take steps to prevent China from acquiring TSMC.

The harm to Apple and the broader Western tech industry is so substantial that it could be likened to a level of disruption not witnessed since World War II.
