The following is the [XGNews]: Apple completed the design of self-developed a16 processor and accepted the 4nm capacity of 120000-150000 chips under the price increase package of TSMC recommended by xgapn.com.
It is reported that Apple accepted the price increase package to step down the 4nm production capacity of 120000-150000 pieces of Jidian.
According to the information from the supply chain industry, the design of Apple’s self-developed new generation a16 application processor has been finalized and will be delivered in TSMC 4nm n4p process. It is expected to enter mass production in TSMC Fab 18 plant in the second half of the year.
It is reported that Apple’s a16 application processor will be equipped with a new generation of iPhone 14 and iPad. Due to the shortage of wafer foundry capacity, Apple has accepted a price increase to ensure capacity, including 120000-150000 pieces of 4nm capacity.
According to industry sources, the average price of TSMC 16nm, optimized 12NM, 7Nm, optimized 6nm, 5nm and optimized 4nm in 2022 will increase by about 8-10% compared with that in 2021, and the 4nm price of Apple a16 processor will also increase. However, as it is the largest customer, the increase will be lower than that of other advanced process customers.
