TSMC will also manufacture the most advanced 3nm chips in Arizona

Most advanced chip production is concentrated in Asia, with Samsung and TSMC being the main ones. While Samsung has been manufacturing on 3nm technology for some time, TSMC is a bit behind on this one. However, the company is building a new $12 billion factory in the US in Arizona, which should somewhat reduce America’s dependence on the situation in Asia (although it is still necessary to take into account the fact that it is a Taiwanese company, and not to forget the efforts of China more control the territory of Taiwan). The factory should start producing chips in 2024, using 5nm technology.

But here we get new information, because the founder of the company Morris Chang let it be known that TSMC plans to produce 3nm chips in Arizona. The final versions of the plans are not ready yet, but 5nm production should be phase 1, and 3nm production should be phase 2. Both should take place within the same complex, and the 3nm line should stand close to the 5nm one. This would allow US companies to get 5nm and 3nm chips directly from US factories, but the question is how much that would help when most products are assembled in Asia anyway. Will this mean that the production of final products will also take place more often in the USA? We don’t know that yet. Let’s remind you that TSMC is the most valuable Asian company publicly traded on the stock exchange.
