In addition to being the only manufacturer in the world capable of mass production of 5nm chips, TSMCs process for 3nm chips is also progressing smoothly. Trial production will start in 2021 and mass production will start in 2022. Recently, Taiwan Economic Daily reported that TSMC has achieved a technological breakthrough in the 2 nm process and will conduct a small-scale trial production in 2023.
If we look at technology alone, Samsung is only half a year behind TSMC. But judging from the market statistics, Samsungs share of the global chip OEM market is only one third of that of TSMC.
Recently, Samsungs good news is that it has won the OEM orders from two big companies: Qualcomm will hand over all 5g chips to Samsung, the first one to be manufactured by Samsungs 5nm process is the snapdragon 875; the 7Nm chip will be handed over to Samsung by NVIDIA.
