Samsung Kicks Advanced Chip-Making Race Into High Gear

Samsung Electronics Co. unveiled targets for making its most advanced chips, detailing for the first time how its production road map would compare with that of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. in their closely watched technology race.

On Monday, Samsung’s contract chipmaking unit said it would start manufacturing chips on the 2-nanometer production process in 2025 and the 1.4-nanometer production process in 2027. That advances from its current 3-nanometer chip production that began in June and which the company called an industry first.
