Samsung seems ready to beat its rival TSMC when it comes to the first mass production of 3nm chips. Sources told South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency that the announcement will be made next week.

This puts a small margin over the Taiwanese competitor, which expects its N3 node to be operational in the second half of this year. There are said to be few customers for Samsung, which had to deal with complaints about low yields last year. AMD was interested because TSMC couldn’t provide enough capacity.

By 2025, both manufacturers plan to have their 2nm processes operational. Both use omnidirectional gate transistors, a technology in which the conductor is completely covered by the switch, to allow as little leakage current as possible. Samsung’s 3nm node is already using this, which has raised some questions about efficiencies. How this will work will be revealed in the coming months.
