During its Foundry Forum event, Samsung released more information on what can be expected from the company’s chip production facilities in the future.
Samsung is ready to start production of 3nm chips during the first half of 2022, while the second generation of 3nm chips will arrive in 2023. Also, the company pointed out that mass production of chips in the 2nm process will start during 2025.
Samsung’s upcoming manufacturing processes will take advantage of the company’s GAA technology and Multi-Bridge-Channel FET. The first manufacturing process to use these technologies will be the first-generation Samsung 3nm nod, which will allow a 35% increase in size, 30% higher performance, and 50 percent lower consumption compared to the 5nm node.
The South Korean company also pointed out that it will continue to invest in the FinFET process. Although the 14nm FinFET process is several years old, Samsung is still improving it, adding support for 3.3V and built-in MRAM flash type.
