Last week, a Korean media outlet revealed that Samsung will soon announce the mass production of its 3nm (using GAA) chip. And today, the company has officially confirmed that it’s beginning the chip production using 3nm process technology with advanced GAA architecture.

Unlike previous generations of chips that used FinFETs, Samsung uses the GAA (Gate All Around) transistor architecture, which greatly improves power efficiency. In a statement, Samsung said that the 1st gen 3nm process (GAA) chip reduces power consumption by 45 percent, improves performance by 23 percent, and reduces the area by 16 percent compared to conventional 5-nanometer chips.

In addition to Samsung, Taiwan’s TSMC as well as Intel plan to start mass production of 3nm chips in the second half of this year and the second half of next year, respectively. While Samsung becomes the first to start 3nm chip production, TSMC aims to achieve mass production of 2-nanometer chips in 2025.

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Limited Edition

Samsung has not yet started the One UI 5 Watch Beta Program. As there are still two days remaining in the month, the company may begin the trial anytime for Galaxy Watch 4 and 5. Well, we are sharing a cool trick using which you can cancel sending diagnostic data to Samsung during One UI 5 Watch Beta.

In order to participate in the Samsung One UI 5 Watch Beta program, you will need to agree to send diagnostic data at the subscription stage. Without ticking the sign, you won’t be able to sign up for the Beta activity, leading you to wait until late 2023 to get new features of the OS.

However, you can turn this setting off by following the path in the Galaxy Wearable app: Watch settings > Watch information > Legal information > Sending diagnostic data to Samsung. Even with this setting set as OFF, you can still keep and use Beta software.

Regardless, the company recommends setting it as ON, because the diagnostic data is only used for finding problems and improvement points of Beta software. Now, it’s up to you whether you want to share the device’s diagnostic data with Samsung or not.

Samsung Exynos chip for XR (extended reality) coming?

Published

on

Earlier this year, the MX Division revealed a plan to develop XR devices, which Samsung sees as a new cash cow on top of smartphones. KEDGlobal sources are claiming that the Samsung Exynos XR device chip market plan is now taking concrete shape.

The company has been taking steps to develop XR (extended reality) chips to challenge Qualcomm and Google in the fast-growing market. Samsung is reportedly considering developing new processing units for XR (extended reality) products or modifying the existing Exynos line.

Samsung’s System LSI Division, the chip giant’s only fabless division, produces the Exynos series of processors embedded in smartphones, cars and wearable devices. A processor acts as the brain or a central processing unit, but SoCs are not designed for XR gadgets.

XR devices like smart glasses create immersive experiences, enabling three-dimensional virtual meetings and offering live translated captions of foreign languages. Their CPUs gather and process sensor data; measure and track a user’s body and eye movements; and estimate the user’s location.

Qualcomm is at the forefront of the XR device chip development. However, Samsung said earlier this year that it would collaborate with Qualcomm and Google to develop XR devices, independently of its System LSI Division within the company.
