Samsung has already mastered the 5 nm chip manufacturing process and is preparing for mass production.

Samsung reported on the successful development of 5-nanometer processor technology

and readiness to begin mass production as early as next year.

What it is

Now this is the most delicate manufacturing processsemiconductor chips. The thinning of the chip production process allows transistors to be placed more densely and, as a result, reduce energy costs and increase signal transmission speed.

According to Samsung, the 5 nm process will improve processor performance by 10% or reduce power consumption by 25%.

The company is mastering technology quiterapidly: only at the end of last year they launched the production of chips based on 7-nanometer standards. True, the Exynos 9820 processors installed in the Galaxy S10 flagships also use 8-nanometer standards. But Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is made using the 7 nm process.


New standards have already been mastered at the S3 factory in Hwaseong(South Korea). Moreover, Samsung has already begun accepting orders for the first trial samples, and promises to begin mass production in the second quarter of 2020.

Who is first?

Taiwan's TSMC will become Samsung's competitor.which just the other day announced its readiness for test production of 5-nanometer chips. It plans to begin mass production by the end of this year.
