The manufacture of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is anticipated to be outsourced by Qualcomm to TSMC and Samsung, two companies with long-standing relationships. The majority of chip orders, however, may end up going to the Taiwanese manufacturer because of the very high yield rate of 80%, according to the most recent study.
TSMC is able to implement between 75 and 80% of a single 3nm GAA wafer, compared to the industry average of 60 to 70%. If we may believe this information, Apple and Qualcomm’s A17 Bionic and Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 next-generation chipsets won’t experience any shipping problems. Prior to collaborating with the US business Silicon Frontline Technology, Samsung initially had a terrible yield rate of around 20%.
The problem for Qualcomm and other chip makers is that price is paid per wafer, and yielding fewer chips results in a higher price for a chipset for the end user, the smartphone manufacturer, which would result in a higher market price. This price increase would ultimately be detrimental to everyone.
