The first Apple A17 Bionic and M3 chips, made using the 3nm process technology, turned out to be very discovered in production.
Only 55% of processors are suitable for installation in gadgets. The remaining 45% is marriage.
In this regard, Apple became TSMC’s board only for working processors, and at a reduced price. Apple is TSMC’s main customer, so the Chinese factory accepts such terms.
Once TSMC gets production up and running and cuts scrap rates to at least 30%, Apple will slow price increases for standard-priced processors.
TSMC plans to release 100,000 3nm processors per month by the end of 2023. [Wfcctech]
