Nvidia and Apple are expected to be the first customers of 3nm chips made by TSMC in the United States

Between sanctions against China (opens in a new tab) and US CHIPS law could slow business in Taiwan (opens in a new tab), the semiconductor industry is poised for a big upheaval. Of course, much of this was orchestrated by the United States to attract more businesses to the country. Europe has done much the same with its own act, and while Taiwan will likely continue to dominate (opens in a new tab) the semiconductor industry for some time to come, we’re starting to see some slight changes.

The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, or TSMC, is one of the biggest producers of chips, especially when it comes to advanced manufacturing. According to NikkeiAsia (opens in a new tab), TSMC is set to bring some of that power to the United States by manufacturing its 4nm chips at a new factory in Arizona. This despite previous statements by TSMC founder Morris Chang (opens in a new tab)claiming that US-based manufacturing would be too expensive.
