An earlier Digitimes report stated that TSMC had begun pilot production of N3 chips at its Fab 18 in southern Taiwan earlier this December. A report earlier this year states that Apple and Intel have begun testing chip designs with 3nm process technology.

Apple’s 2nd gen and 3rd gen processors are said to be built on TSMC’s 5nm and 3nm process tech, respectively. And they are expect to outperform Intel’s equivalent future chips.

The 2nd generation of Apple’s desktop processors will reportedly use two dice that will allow more cores to be packed into one chip. They will be built on an enhanced version of TSMC’s 5nm process. And are expected in 2022 with the next MacBook Pro models and other Mac desktops.

TSMC is also said to be making 5G modems for iPhones from 2023. Apple is said to be using TSMC’s 5nm chip production to design and test-produce 5G modems. But it will use 4nm technology for mass production.
