Samsung will present its 3nm technology to the president of the United States


Samsung would show this week its most advanced manufacturing process, the 3nm GAE, to the president of the United States

Joe Biden. As indicated, it will be this week when the president visits the campus of the Korean giant in the city of Pyeongtaek, and at a time when the entire industry is short of chips, Samsung wants to try to win over a powerful ally, and client, who is leaving to its most advanced manufacturing process, of which, until now, there is no official report that reveals which companies are interested or have already closed an agreement for its use.

The US president is reportedly coming to Seoul for a three-day visit, and according to local South Korean media Yonhap, that visit will include a tour of Samsung's Pyeongtaek facility, which is also the largest in the country. world and are located about 70 kilometers south of Seoul. 

In addition to Biden, Samsung Vice President Lee Jae-yong is said to accompany him on the visit to demonstrate the mass production process of his next-generation manufacturing process.

For several months, it has been reported that Samsung is going to start mass production of its 3nm Gate-All-Around (GAA) technology. Just last April, the company indicated that it will start the mass manufacturing process of 3GAE (3nm) during this quarter. 

With this, the company will achieve two milestones: being the first to offer a 3nm manufacturing process in the industry (at least on paper, we are not talking about densities), as well as being the first to use a manufacturing process with a GAAFET (Gate All Around FET) design. 3GAE = at 3nm GAAFET.

According to Samsung, its 3nm fabrication process reduces the overall size of the silicon by 35 percent compared to the 5nm FinFET fabrication process. In addition to being smaller, it promises a decrease in power consumption of around 50 percent, while performance increases by 33 percent and transistor density grows by 80%.

According to statistics presented by TrendForce, TSMC took 52.1 percent of the global foundry market, followed by Samsung with 18.3 percent, in the fourth quarter of last year. An earlier report mentioned that Samsung was struggling with its 3nm GAA process as the rate of return was supposedly worse than its 4nm technology.

Samsung is expected to start mass production of its advanced chip technology soon, so we'll see how it fares against what TSMC brings to the table.
