Earlier this month, TSMC released its Q4 2020 quarterly results. In addition to a record turnover of 10.6 billion euros, the chip maker also realized a record profit of 4.2 billion. The 5nm process is responsible for 20% of the quarterly turnover. Apple’s A14 and M1 socs are produced on this process.
Apple’s iPhone 12 is currently the world’s best-selling 5G smartphone.
Partly thanks to the strong quarter, annual profit increased by 50%. The company is therefore planning to invest heavily. Where initially an amount of $ 22 billion was expected, there is now talk of a capital expenditure of up to 28 billion. That is half more than initially expected. About 80% of this amount would be used to expand production of 7, 5 and 3 nanometers.
These investments should ensure that TSMC maintains its position as market leader. For example, the Taiwanese company expects annual revenue growth of 10 to 15 percent until 2025. In addition to Apple, AMD must also provide a large part of these sales figures. Potential Intel orders were not discussed, as the manufacturer does not want to comment on specific customers.
