AMD Set to Become TSMC’s Second Largest 5nm Client Overthrowing Intel
According to a recent claim from the Taiwanese newspaper DigiTimes, AMD is expected to become the second-largest customer of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) for the latter’s 5nm technology products.
In addition to finding a trustworthy supply chain partner capable of promptly delivering cutting-edge goods, AMD and TSMC’s cooperation has allowed the former to continuously win market share from its bigger rival Intel Corporation.
According to the research released today, AMD will have a busy few months as it works to improve its product selection in a number of market categories. The business provides multiple technology resources which have the potential for further development. The article states that a desktop CPU will be the first upgrade towards achieving 5nm technology. The Ryzen 7000 series is set to be announced this month which is supposedly based on the latest architecture provided by TSMC.
Ryzen 7000 will be followed by improvements to notebook CPUs, which will result in the introduction of the Ryzen 7000 notebook and laptop processors in 2023. Phoenix will employ the more sophisticated 4nm manufacturing technology, whereas Dragon Range will be constructed on the 5nm node. These chips will be made available, according to DigiTimes, in the first half of next year.
Together, these CPUs will generate a sizable volume of orders for TSMC, which will guarantee that AMD will overtake Intel as the second-largest 5nm client. The future seems promising for both TSMC and AMD as they work on developing a steady partnership.
