TSMC confirmed in statements issued today that the new version of the A14 Bionic chip, which is launched in the iPhone 12 series, will support reducing energy consumption in phones by 30%.
Apple is working on designing its own chips, and then the manufacturing process moves to TSMC, a leading manufacturer of chips, as Apple is one of TSMC's biggest customers, followed by Huawei, which comes out of the chipmaking competition soon after the new US restrictions imposed on TSMC.
TSMC clarified at its annual conference today the new features and upgrade presented in the A14 Bionic chip, which supports the first 5G series of Apple iPhone 12 phones.
The A14 Bionic processor chip is based on the TSMC manufacturing process with a precision of 5 nm, which is a new upgrade for Apple's current processors that come with a precision of 7 nm manufacturing, also with a reduction in manufacturing precision to 5 nm, the chip will come with a larger number of transistors to provide higher efficiency and performance.
The A14 Bionic processor chip comes with 15 billion chips, which is more than the A13 Bionic chip, which came with 8.5 billion chips, meaning that the new chip comes with a 76% greater number.
On the other hand, Apple, through the new chip, can support the continued life of the batteries for a longer period of time through improvements also in the iOS platform.
TSMC has confirmed that the new Apple A14 Bionic processor chip will support a 30% reduction in battery consumption, and 15% faster performance. Also, expectations indicate that Apple will rely on the efficiency of the A14 Bionic chip to reduce energy consumption, given the company's tendency to choose capacity Limited battery on iPhone 12.
