TSMC reportedly began production of Apple's A14Bionic chips earlier this year. e company apparently provides three versions of 5 nodes for different partners nm. The conventional 5 nm、5nm and enhanced 5 nm manufacturing processes are said to be ready for different customers, but it has not been confirmed which manufacturing process Apple will use for its A14Bionic. Whatever manufacturing node Apple chooses,Some people believe that TSMC is ready to ship a large number of products for apple, but we will soon know whether these chips serve only one product.
According to twitter user l0vetodream, TSMC hasAppleA large number of A14 chips have been prepared for shipment. However, l0veto dream did not say which A14 would be produced for which Apple product. But it's said to be comingiPhone12 series, which may use A14 bionic, followed by the new oneiPadThe Pro Series, which will use a14x bionic, will use the same 5 nm manufacturing process.
Then comes the upcoming arm based MAC, which, according to previous rumors, will use a 5nm chip with 12 cores. It's not clear why the SOC will be named, but if the first arm based MAC comes this year, as apple said in its WWDC 2020 keynote address, it may be named after the A14 series. If there are three different products that are expected to use the A14 chip, the 80 million products are likely to be divided by them.
Because of previous reports that Apple's forecast for iPhone 12 shipments of mmwave 5g models has been reduced by 50%, the shipment of these A14 chips is likely to be distributed among iPhones, iPads and arm based Macs.
