TSMC will manufacture Apple’s upcoming SoCs (System on a Chip) “M2 Pro” and “M3” based on its new 3nm process. At least that’s what the Taiwanese industry magazine wants DigiTimes have experienced. As expected, TSMC will start mass-producing 3nm chips in the second half of 2022, according to the report.

M2 Pro is to be produced in 3nm

“Apple has reportedly booked TSMC capacity for its upcoming 3nm M3 and M2 Pro processors,” DigiTimes said in a report that focuses on competition between chipmakers like TSMC and Samsung.

In its most recent newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said the M2 Pro will power the 14-inch MacBook Pro, 16-inch MacBook Pro and a high-end Mac mini. As for the M3, Gurman expects the chip to be used in an updated 13-inch MacBook Air, an all-new 15-inch MacBook Air, a new iMac, and possibly a new 12-inch MacBook.

In all likelihood, the M2 Max would also be manufactured on the basis of a 3nm process in this scenario. This chip would be suitable for the highest MacBook Pro configurations and the Mac Studio if Apple decides to update this computer within the next year.

While it was widely expected that the M3 would be manufactured in 3nm process, it is worth noting that the M2 Pro could also be manufactured in 3nm process. The standard M2 chip, which made its debut in the new MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro, is still based on TSMC’s 5nm process. Both the M1 and M1 Pro chip use the same manufacturing process. So it would mean a change of course at Apple if the M2 and M2 Pro were based on different manufacturing processes.
