Oh, okay. That's possible. I haven't tracked how many different phones/other products use Snapdragons, but S-series Samsung phones certainly do have Snapdragon options. In that light, Samsung certainly is shooting themselves in the foot.Samsung is the biggest customer of Qualcomm leading-edge SoCs.
IDK. Phones are a weird market. Apple and Samsung are making upwards of 90% of the profits in that market. (Last I checked). Other than their CPUs, Apple makes bank on it’s premium style, and their ecosystem. Samsung has a weaker CPU, but makes bank on equally impressive specs in others areas (like cameras) and compatibility with the rest of the known universe ( ). So, both approaches work.Is this even big deal at all? Apple is sure happy, but Android users are used to SoCs that are like half performance of latest Apple stuff.
Hard to say that is confirmed though. Samsung Foundry site still goes by the original 2019 projections on 3GAE. Being nerfed or not, I really doubt it will be worse than 4LPP.If you compare the 2019 projections for 3GAE and the 2021 reality, they don't exactly line up. By a long shot.
Seems official now for foundry partners, 3GAE gone, 3GAP is here,Samsung 3GAE gutted and delayed, 3GAE could be behind 4LPE it looks like.
End of road for FinFET? Just like planar died on 20nm, it seems that GAA is needed to push forward.In 2022 the capacity for N5 will be more than 3.5x than that from last year. So lots to go around. N5P (HP) scaling only 1.38x big letdown. N5 HD 1.8x for logic.
In 2H22 N3 will come online for the likes of Apple probably. But not so interesting for HPC. Analog and SRAM barely any scaling.
