Samsung becomes the first company to launch 3nm chips

Samsung Electronics announced a few weeks ago the start of mass production of chips GAA (Door all around) to 3nm. Now, just a few hours ago, Samsung announced the official shipment of the first 3nm chips to its customers. With this, the company becomes the leading 3nm chipmaker of the world, exceeding TSMC in question in nanometers.

Samsung managed to exceed expectations and managed to launch its first 3nm chips without any delay. And it is that today the Korean giant celebrated a ceremony to celebrate this milestone. Thus, it succeeded in becoming the first company in the world to manufacture, produce and launch chips in the market under a node at 3nm. That said, the first batch will not go to smartphone manufacturers as initially believed.

The first batch of 3nm GAA chips will be for cryptocurrency mining

That’s right, the customer who takes Samsung’s first 3nm GAA chips will be a chipmaker dedicated to crypto-mining. Therefore, we can say that the first to benefit from this next-gen node are the miners. That said, with Samsung’s new GAA process, performance will be improved, power consumption will be reduced, and a new threshold of mining efficiency.

And it is that, although it seemed that it was going to disappear, it will continue to give war since ethereal He still has a few months to live before reaching “Fusion“. Here, as we know, the cryptocurrency will no longer be able to be mined, which is a serious blow to miners. That said, compared to 5nmSamsung’s 3nm GAA process improves performance in one 23%decrease the energy consumption in one Four five% and reduces the surface used by 16%.

In addition, the manufacturer hopes to launch a second generation of its 3nm, whose performance will be improved by up to one 30%energy consumption will be reduced up to 50% and the area used will be reduced by 35%. Thus, by using GAA technology, Samsung manages to overcome the design EndFET and hopes to be able to use these chips in various applications of high performance and low consumption. Among them, it is expected to be used in smartphone processors, but we will have to wait a bit for that.

Samsung’s new Node is expected to hit smartphones in 2024

Samsung Electronics has finally managed to overtake TSMC, which has announced that it will launch mass production of its 3nm node by the end of the year. However, the 3nm GAA node is expected to reach smartphones in 2024, to mass-produce its next samsung exynos 2300. In addition, it is rumored that they may also be used in Qualcomm company’s mobile phones, such as Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. But such a case would only happen if TSMC’s future 3nm node had too high power consumption.

Yet, despite becoming the first manufacturer in the world to offer 3nm, the news generated quite a bit of controversial. And it is that, on the one hand, Samsung’s first customer is a manufacturer of barely known mining chips. On the other hand, the foundry Main Samsung is in Pyeongtaek while the 3nm were born from Hwaseongwho is only one R&D center. For this reason, it is believed that essentially the miners will be “the guinea pig”, who will experiment with the chips released from the laboratory as a first.

“On the 25th, Samsung Electronics held a shipment ceremony for 3nm foundry products using GAA (Gate All Around) Next-Generation Transistor Technology on Line V1 (EUV) at Hwaseong Campus, Gyeonggi-do.”

“The event was attended by about 100 people, including Minister of Commerce, Industry and Energy, Changyang Lee, suppliers, fabless, head of DS division of Samsung Electronics, Kyeong-hyeon Kye (Chairman), and managers and employees, as well as managers and employees who participated in the R&D and mass production of 3nm GAA were encouraged. Kim Young-jae, CEO of Daeduk Electronics; Lee Jun-hyeok, general manager of Dongjin Semichem; Jung Hyun-seok, CEO of Soulbrain; Kim Chang-hyun, CEO of Won Semicon; Lee Hyun-duk, CEO of Wonik IPS; Lee Kyung-il, CEO of PSK; Ko Sang-geol, Vice President of KC Tech; Jang-gyu Lee, CEO of Telechips.”
