Apple’s iPhone XI will be performance king again

May 27, 2019


Besides Samsung, Apple’s foundry darling TSMC is the main challenger in the battle for leadership in the production of chips using the upgraded 7nm process. Last fall, Samsung announced that it is kickstarting a new chipset method production, and we will spare you all the juicy argon fluoride against ultraviolet details, going straight to the benefits for the end user.

Chips made with the second-gen 7nm extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography can be produced easier, with better yields, and with a reduced number of masks needed for production that will make them cheaper to make on average. At the same time, compared with the 10nm chips in the Note 9 or iPhone X, the EUV silicon can be made with a 40% smaller footprint, and either 20% faster, or with the whopping 50% reduction in power draw.
