Samsung first announced 1.4 nm process: chip will be put into production in 2027

2022-10-10

Although Huang Renxun, CEO of NVIDIA, has become pessimistic and Moore's Law is dead, for TSMC, Samsung and Intel, the pace of chip miniaturization in the nanoscale has not stopped.

Recently, Samsung announced the 1.4nm process node in its revised roadmap for the first time and plans to put it into production in 2027.

At the same time, Samsung also decided to put the 2nm process into production in 2025, roughly in sync with TSMC.

In fact, Samsung has previously announced that it will start to produce chips with 3nm GAA transistor structure, although it is doubted that the first products are only used as "mice" by mining machine manufacturers.

At least compared with Intel, Samsung is not ahead of schedule. The latter's 18A process (equivalent to 2nm) has been put into production by the end of 2024 ahead of schedule.

In terms of other processes, Samsung wants to expand 3nm (expected to be the second generation) to high-performance computing and mobile chips, and develop special 4nm processes for high-performance computing and automotive chips.

In addition, there are 5nm and 8nm processes for RF devices and 8nm, 14nm and 28nm processes for embedded nonvolatile memory (eNVM).

According to Samsung, they hope to triple the chip capacity by 2027.
