TSMC begins manufacturing the 7-nanometer processors.
According to Bloomber and their sources, Apple’s chip producer TSMC has begun manufacturing the 7nm processor that will be used in iPhone’s next line up. The company has already announced that the A12 chip will offer major performance and energy improvements over the A11 processor used in iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus.
The high-volume production has begun, following the initial test batches in April. A12 will be built into the new iPhone models expected in September.
There will be some significant benefits of using A12 over A11. The new processor will offer 40% more power-efficiency. It will be smaller, faster and less energy consuming.
TSMC will be the only producer of A12 chips for Iphone line 2018, which will include a 5.8-inch OLED model, a larger 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus, and a low-cost iPhone with LCD that may have a 6.1 inch screen. Among the improvements of these new models may be a reduced top notch, improved cameras, larger batteries, and more. What do you expect of the iPhone 9 ?
