Samsung Foundry has announced that production of its 1st generation 3nm processors has now begun using GAA (Gate-All-Around) architecture, the successor to FinFET.
Compared to a 5nm chip, Samsung’s first 3nm chip offers a 23% increase in efficiency, up to 45% power savings and 16% less space usage.
Samsung is still aiming for the second-generation 3nm chips to have 30% more power, 50% less power and 35% less space compared to 5nm chips.
Samsung is expected to start producing 3nm chips in the second half of this year.
