Tesla will partner with Samsung for the mass production of its cutting-edge 4nm process node, which will be utilized in its fifth-generation auto chips, according to an exclusive report in the Korea Economic Daily on Tuesday. Tesla had initially chosen TSMC as its sole production partner for the HW 5.0 automotive chips last year. However, industry sources have recently revealed that Tesla plans to collaborate with both Samsung and TSMC, as Samsung has successfully improved the yield rate of its 4nm process around 70%, which is comparable to TSMC’s rate. HW 5.0 represents Tesla’s upcoming generation of autonomous driving hardware and is expected to be implemented in the company’s high-end models, including L5 auto vehicles, within the next three to four years.
