China's largest chipmaker, the Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) has copied the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC) chipmaking designs for the 7-nanometer chip manufacturing technology according to a research report quoted by the Taiwanese press. SMIC's 7nm process, which first surfaced in 2020, has made it into a Bitcoin mining computer, which was torn down by TechInsights earlier this week to confirm that the company has started producing semiconductors with the advanced technologies, allowing it to catch up with the world's largest chipmakers such as U.S. giant Intel Corporation, TSMC and Samsung Foundry. Soon afterward, reports in the Taiwanese press surfaced stating that SMIC's designs mirror those of TSMC and that the company will still find it hard to move beyond 7nm.




China's largest chipmaker SMIC has allegedly copied the chipmaking designs of TSMC, the world's largest contract chipmaker.
