The latest claims made by sources close to the world’s largest chip manufacturer TSMC are quite annoying.
Especially between 2008-2020 was a very good period for technology enthusiasts. When we look back now, we see that it was much easier to access almost all technological devices from smartphones to computers during these years, both in our country and around the world.
However, the supply-demand imbalance, which turned upside down especially with the onset of the pandemic, left a wreckage behind. When raw material inflation was added to this situation, things started to become unbearable.
Taiwanese technology giant TSMC, one of the most important chip manufacturers in the world, announced that it will soon switch to the stage of chip production with the 3Nm process. If we look at it only in terms of this statement, this is a very positive development in terms of showing that we will get devices with more powerful processors. However, there is also the other side of the coin, which is where it will bother you a lot.
According to information from sources close to TSMC, raw material costs will increase with the transition to the 3Nm process, and TSMC will demand large increases for the chips it produces, considering its investments. Considering that the biggest names in almost every industry, from Apple to Nvidia, meet their chip needs from TSMC, you shouldn’t be surprised to see a big hike in the second half of next year.
