TSMC: Affordable services for all Americans
The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing giant is a massive product contractor behind products of numerous brands. The company is responsible for building CPU architecture for AMD, Qualcomm processors used in Android, and also chips for NVIDIA and AMD GPUs. But it doesn’t stop there. One of their latest products is inside the latest models from Apple. The brand new iPhone 9 SE, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 8 have chipsets made by TSMC.
The company is ahead of famous chip manufacturers, Intel, in many ways. The company is already underway to commence the risk production of 5-nm manufacturing technology. All these innovations taking place in home soil will prove useful for the USA. In terms of its effect, many latest phones will be available for a more affordable price in the USA.
The shift of TSMC to the land of tech giants cuts the overhead cost of import taxes for all companies. This means you’ll get the same advanced technology for a more affordable price. However, a lot depends on further advances with the plant.
Hopefully, everything will go well. But do let us know what you have to say about this development in the comments section below!
