TSMC will start mass production of 5-nanometer chips by 2021

The Taiwanese TSMC, the largest player in the chip maker market, recently shared its plans for the coming years. The company's main goal is to launch branded 5-nanometer chips into mass production.
Right now, in the company's laboratories, test production of N5 + chips is being carried out, which will get improved characteristics: a 15% increase in performance and an almost twofold decrease in chip size due to a more dense arrangement of transistors.
The development of N5 + processors is still only a promising direction, but for now for a smartphone manufacturer from a Taiwanese company, an advanced N7 + chip is stored, which is less than its predecessor by 20 percent and has reduced power consumption.
