Samsung may spend hundreds of billions of dollars in semiconductor mergers and acquisitions
At present, both Samsung and TSMC are eager to bring the 3nm process to the market, and the competition between the two parties will intensify in the next two years. Samsung currently plans to mass-produce the 3nm GAA process in the first half of 2022 and mass-produce the second-generation 3nm process in 2023. TSMC’s N3 process node still uses the structure of FinFET transistors. It is expected to mass-produce the N3 process node in the second half of 2022 and plans to launch an enhanced 3nm process called N3E. The mass production time is the second half of 2023.
