TSMC Planning 3-Nanometer Chip Production in Arizona

Sarah Wu, reporting for Reuters:

Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC is planning to produce chips with advanced 3-nanometer technology at its new factory in the U.S. state of Arizona but the plans are not completely finalised yet, the company’s founder Morris Chang said on Monday. [...]

Chang, speaking to reporters in Taipei after returning from the APEC summit in Thailand, said the 3-nanometer plant would be located at the same Arizona site as the 5-nanometre plant. “Three-nanometer, TSMC right now has a plan, but it has not been completely finalised,” said Chang, who has retired from TSMC but remains influential in the company and the broader chip industry. “It has almost been finalised — in the same Arizona site, phase two. Five-nanometer is phase one, 3-nanometer is phase two.”

Would be a big win in all sorts of ways if this comes to pass.
