Apple rumored to give M3 chip a significant upgrade, potentially boosting its product line

Apple’s next-generation silicon, the M3 chip, is highly anticipated, and a new report suggests that it will be more advanced than previously thought. According to the China Times, via Wccftech, Apple will skip TSMC’s 3nm process and instead go for the more advanced N3E process at the Taiwanese chip foundry. Apple is expected to be the first customer to use this process node for both the M3 chip that will power the next MacBook Air and iPad Pro.

The report also suggests that Apple may use the advanced 3nm node for its A17 Bionic chip, which will power a future iPhone and non-pro iPad. However, given Apple’s tendency to keep upcoming releases tightly under wraps, it’s best to approach these rumors with a dose of healthy skepticism.

Apple’s switch to the more advanced 3nm process node is expected to provide significant performance improvements, and it could be just what the tech giant needs to stay ahead of the competition. Apple’s previous M-series chips have already proven to be game-changers in the industry, and if these reports hold true, the M3 chip could be another major step forward for Apple’s chip-making capabilities.
