Kuo: Apple chip products from TSMC will arrive on the Mac in 2020 and the Apple Car in 2023
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will use the processor's “A” series, currently only on iOS devices, even for Mac computers in 2020 and for the new project, the Apple Car in 2023.
The partnership between Apple and TSMC works in an exceptional manner. The company from Cupertino has commended the taiwanese on several occasions, thanks to their continuous improvement of design technologies. In fact, this year the TSMC has brought to market a mobile chip to 7 nanometers, just as he wanted the Apple for its new processors A12 Bionic. For these reasons, TSMC will continue to be the exclusive supplier of chip of the series “A”, which may soon become the heart of the new Mac and the ambitious project of Apple Car.
Kuo claims that the partnership between Apple, TSMC is destined to last in the coming years, with the good advantages for both companies. TSCM this year may keep a record of the earnings record in Q1 2019, thanks to sales of the iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, but especially in the iPhone XR. Regarding the future expectations, Kuo believes that we'll see Apple introduce the first Macs with ARM chips in 2020 or 2021. The reason for this choice could be a greater optimization between hardware and software, reduced costs, and the lack of planning on the part of Intel on future processors.
In the future, Kuo predicts that TSMC will manufacture the custom chip for the “advanced Systems of driving assistance on the Apple Car.” We have to wait for the development of the construction technique to 3-5 nanometers, thanks to which you will get a sufficient computing power to manage these systems.
