TSMC Might Cut 3nm Prices to Lure AMD, Nvidia

Posted on

Although TSMC’s N3 (3nm-class) family of fabrication processes brings a number of benefits in terms of performance and power, the very high costs of the foundry’s initial N3 node hampers widespread adoption. Unsurprisingly, the company is rumored to be preparing to lower its quotes for 3nm production to stimulate interest from chip designers, according to a report from MyDrivers

While at this point any published TSMC’s N3 quotes and prices should be considered rumors, it’s likely that TSMC’s production costs on its N3E process will be lower than those on its initial N3. It remains to be seen how much the company will charge for production on other N3-class nodes, such as N3P, N3S, and N3X. Lowering prices of 3nm production will attract more customers to these nodes, but this is not something that is going to happen overnight.
