Samsung postpones the production of 3- and 2-nm chips of the next generation

Published

Currently, 5-nanometer manufacturing is the most advanced technology in the manufacture of modern microcircuits. The next important step should be the transition to a 3-nanometer technological process.

Samsung introduced the 3GAE (3nm Gate-All-Around Early) and 3GAP (3nm Gate-All-Around Plus) nodes a couple of years ago, promising significant power savings and improved overall performance. Now, the South Korean giant has announced the postponement of its 3nm chip production technology to 2022. What’s more, the company has also postponed the release of the 2nm chip until 2025.

Samsung uses cutting-edge technology to manufacture its chipsets, and the South Korean giant’s clients include Qualcomm, IBM and other major companies. Samsung is competing with TSMC, which also announced a few months ago that it will postpone the launch of 3nm chips.

At the time of the announcement in 2019, Samsung said the 3nm process could offer a 35 percent jump in performance in addition to a 50 percent reduction in power consumption over the 7LPP process.

Delaying the introduction of the new technology makes sense given that chip makers are under tremendous pressure as there is currently a global shortage of semiconductors. Samsung wants to stick to a proven process with better performance than the experimental process.

Not a trace remained of $ 66,000. Bitcoin fell, followed by Ethereum

The week began for the main cryptocurrencies of the world with a rise in price and the establishment of new price highs, and ends with a fall, and quite noticeable. Over the course of a day, Bitcoin loses about 4.5% of its value, and as a result, for 1 BTC now they give not $ 66,000, but about $ 60,500.

After Bitcoin began to fall, Ethereum was still holding, but its rate had already gone down too, dropping below the psychological mark of $ 4,000. Analysts believe that such a fall in cryptocurrencies is due to their sell-off on the part of investors – they are fixing profits against the backdrop of a strong growth in value that has been observed since the end of September. This means that after the current correction, Bitcoin may rush to new heights, but whether altcoins will follow it is a big question.
