Spending $25-$28 billion to make sure

TSMC has recently reiterated that it's confident that its N2, N3, and N4 processes will be available on time and will be more advanced than competing nodes.

Early this year, TSMC significantly boosted its 2021 CapEx budget to a $25-$28 billion range, further increasing it to around $30 billion as a part of its three-year plan to spend $100 billion on manufacturing capacities and R&D. T

SMC's N5 family of technologies also includes an evolutionary N4 process that will enter risk production later this year and will be used for mass production in 2022.

In 2022, the world's largest contract maker of chips will roll out its brand-new N3 manufacturing process, which will keep using FinFET transistors but is expected to offer the whole package of PPA improvements.
