TSMC Reportedly Secures 3nm Order After Tapeout for Google's Tensor G5

www.trendforce.com, Jul. 04, 2024 – 

Google's Tensor G4 could mark Samsung's last mass-produced SoC, as earlier in May, Tensor G5 is reportedly adopting TSMC's advanced 3nm process. Now here's the latest development. According to a report by Wccftech, the chip, to be used in Google's upcoming Pixel 10 lineup, has already reached tape-out, with mass production expected in 2025.

Google's Tensor G5 would be its first fully self-designed smartphone SoC. Previous Tensor chips, somehow, were modifications from Samsung's Exynos series, with Samsung being its foundry partner.

The report stated that Google's decision to collaborate with TSMC is influenced by the Taiwanese semiconductor company's established reliability in mass-producing wafers using its next-generation nodes.

Before Google, the foundry behemoth has already secured several major clients for its 3nm node. Both Qualcomm and Taiwanese smartphone fabless company MediaTek have reportedly adopted TSMC's N3E node for their first 3nm chipsets. Apple's upcoming A18 chips for iPhone 16 models, are said to be manufactured with TSMC's N3E node as well, according to a report by Commercial Times.

On the other hand, regarding the progress of 3nm, Samsung is still struggling with the low yield rate for its latest Exynos 2500 processors. The company targets to increase the yield rate to over 60% before the product enters mass production, according to a previous report by Korean media outlet ZDNet Korea.
