TSMC’s 7nm process technology in testing now

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has started their 7nm process technology testing in their production line this April.

With 54% of their revenue are under 24nm process technology, they are seeking a raise to 60% this year.

TSMC claims that 7nm process technology can help to improve the processing speed by 25% and reduce energy consumption up to 35% at the same time. While nearly 95% of their machine is capable in the production of 7nm and 10nm, TSMC believes that higher production capability will be better.

As for the 5nm process technology , it is expected to be in production in 2019 as it is currently still in R&D stage.
