The US and Japan want to establish production of 2nm products without Taiwan and prevent technology leakage to China

According to the source, the governments of Japan and the United States are close to an agreement on cooperation in the production of chips using 2 nm technology and even more advanced solutions. Both countries are concerned about their dependence on Taiwanese and other suppliers and are seeking to diversify their sources. They are also working on a mechanism to prevent technology leakage, especially to China.

At present, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) is the leading developer of 2nm technology, and IBM has completed a prototype in 2021. The Japanese government has proposed to TSMC to build a plant on the southwestern island of Kyushu to increase domestic chip production, but the plant will only produce less advanced 10nm to 20nm chips.

At the same time, the new Japanese-American cooperation, focused on advanced developments, can be seen as the next step after being invited to TSMC. The US and Japan are also reportedly working on a mechanism to prevent technology leakage to China and other countries. Japanese Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Koichi Hagiuda is visiting the United States to meet with US Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo.

It is expected that during the same visit they will announce cooperation in the field of chips. Recall that Japan was concerned about the decline in domestic development and production in the industry. In 1990, the country accounted for about 50% of the global semiconductor market with a volume of about $38 billion. Market share has declined by about 10%, even though the industry is growing.

Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) attributes Japan’s waning dominance to a number of factors, including the U.S.-Japan trade war over memory chips, Japan’s inability to adopt a horizontally integrated manufacturing model, digitalization delay, and other factors.

Verified online whistleblower Ice Universe posted new photos on Twitter showing the optical and digital zoom capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra flagship smartphone.

The pictures were taken with an ultra-wide-angle camera (0.6x), a main module (1x), as well as two telephoto lenses with 3x, 10x, 30x and 100x zoom.

Galaxy S23 Ultra, 0.6/1/3/10/30/100x. 30x zoom is beyond me. This is unscientific. Haha.

It can be stated that at 30x zoom, the quality of the images remains quite high for publication in social networks without visible blurs and loss of detail.

In addition, two photographs are presented, the second being made by cropping the original image.

Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones may differ in speed: versions with 128 and 256 GB are equipped with different memory

Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones may differ in speed versions with

As it became known, the versions of the Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphone equipped with 128 and 256 GB of flash memory differ in the type of this very memory.

The 128GB version uses slower UFS 3.1 memory. The 256GB version of the Galaxy S23 uses the new UFS 4.0 memory. In both cases, new LPDDR5X RAM is installed.

Allegedly, the base version may be slower in various scenarios than the 256GB version of the Galaxy S23. UFS 3.1 has a sequential read speed of 2100 Mbps and a sequential write speed of 1200 Mbps, while UFS 4.0 has a sequential read speed of 4200 Mbps and a sequential write speed of 2800 Mbps.

There is evidence that Samsung does not produce 128 GB UFS 4.0 memory chips. Only Kioxia makes 128GB UFS 4.0 memory, but even those don’t reach the required speeds. Therefore, Samsung decided to use UFS 3.1 flash memory for the lower version.

Samsung is offering a free upgrade for those who pre-order the Galaxy S23 series in many countries. For example, if you order the 128 GB version, you can get the 256 GB version.
