  • TikTok’s parent company ByteDance, is trying to step up its game by entering the generative AI chip market. And it’s working with a US chip designer, Broadcom.

    An ongoing partnership has formed between ByteDance-Broadcom to develop 5nm chip. Behold! This might be the next generation of AI processors.

    Many established brands have already decided to make AI chips, so what makes their chip better? Will their AI chip be a new development in the tech industry, and will they be able to lighten the tension in the US-China trade?




  • ByteDance-Broadcom To Develop 5nm Chip

    ByteDance-Broadcom will develop a 5nm chip, likely similar to most new-gen chips. As Nvidia’s chips are far limited outside the US, the Chinese internet giant stockpiled Nvidia A100 and H100 chips to boost its AI push.

    The chip that has been said to be made by ByteDance is rumored to be designed for a 5nm application-specific integrated circuit.

    Just like the recent Snapdragon chips, Bytedance is trying to replicate miniature size and amazing processing power.

    Smaller chip sizes mean more transistors in a single chip, which makes the chip quite powerful. This is similar to the new chip from Snapdragon and MediaTek.




  • Collaboration For Stability

    According to some sources, the chip will be made by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), one of the world’s biggest chip makers. The collaboration with Broadcom and TSMC is very strategic, and ByteDance is in a win-win situation.

    This also means they will have a stable supply and help with procurement costs. ByteDance’s aim for the project is surely to have a stable supply of high-performance AI chips for their business.

    Recently, NVIDIA became the world’s most valuable company and took complete control of the market with its outstanding graphic chips.

    AI has been playing a huge role, and having an AI chip will make TikTok, Doubao, Douyin, and a range of apps’s algorithms better.




  • This partnership will also be a huge win for Broadcom since they have been partners since 2022.

    When Will It Be Released?

    Although announcements regarding ByteDance-Broadcom to develop 5nm chip have been made, it’s not known when the production and development of the chip will be started.

    But it is obvious that they won’t be able to start production this year. Broadcom and ByteDance are still in the designing phase, and it will take some time to reach the finalization stage.




  • ByteDance making its custom chips shows a glimpse of the company’s vision and its potential to take over the tech industries. It’s pretty likely that ByteDance will change the landscape of AI in the future.
