  • A Samsung 3nm manufacturing process for chips is rolling out.
  • This means Samsung is the first to use this new process, beating out competitor TSMC.
  • Samsung claims these new chips could be up to 45% more power-efficient than 5nm chips.

The race is on for manufacturers to create faster, less power-hungry, and more thermally efficient chips. The next big step in this process is three nanometers, which is the next die-shrink.

Although we thought we’d see Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) land first at this milestone, it looks like the Samsung 3nm process is the first. Per a Bloomberg report (via 9to5Google), Samsung has officially started production of these new chips.
