TSMC and Japan Further Investments

TSMC is eyeing a third fab in Japan for 3 nm technology in Kumamoto along with its two other fabs that are currently in constructio. The two fabs are expected to start production by 2024 and 2025 respectively. This information itself was propagated by Nvidia and Apple to its partners, with the third fab code named TSMC Fab-23 Phase 3.

To me this news sound quite exciting as asides from investments from Micron, Samsung and PSMC, Japan is getting supposedly getting more investment towards developing its semiconductor industry from the big boy himself.
