Apple this week unveiled the new M2 chip, which is the first upgrade to the Apple Silicon chips created specifically for the Mac and iPad. While the new M2-powered MacBooks are yet to hit the stores, analyst Jeff Pu of Haitong Intl Tech Research has now reported that Apple supplier TSMC will...
I suppose it’s possible, since the effort to port to 3nm would be used to create the Pro, Max, Ultra, Ultra Max, etc. It would be an unusual maneuver for Apple, of course. (And a lot of the effort they made to create M2 on 5nm would not be maximally-leveraged). That said, I‘ve worked on chips where we ported midstream like this, so anything is possible.
However, quoting the article:
For those unfamiliar, the scale of a chip in nanometer represents the distance between its transistors. The smaller the distance, the better the performance.
I don’t agree with any of that
