(Reuters) - The Biden administration is considering further restrictions on China's access to chip technology used for artificial intelligence, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The measures being discussed would limit China's ability to use a cutting-edge chip architecture known as gate all-around, or GAA, the report said.

GAA is a type of transistor architecture that helps to improve chip performance and reduces power consumption.

It is not clear when officials will make a final decision, with the scope of the potential rule still being determined, the report said.

Leading semiconductor firms including Nvidia, Intel and Advanced Micro Devices, along with chip manufacturers Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing and Samsung are aiming to start mass production of chips with the GAA design within the next year, according to the report.
