Provided it's quarantined
Semiconductor analyst Malcolm Penn told Fudzilla today that if Nvidia plays its cards right with the ARM acquisition, people would be thinking in 10 years' time what a bargain the $40 billion buy was.
Even Qualcomm wants to be friends
The gap between Samsung and TSMC is closing and if it is going to meet its goal of being the world's largest foundary firm by 2030 it is going to have to do even more.
Need TSMC and Foxconn to get on board.
The fruity cargo cult known as Apple claims that it will be carbon neutral in ten years, but apparently that positive statement is dependent on its suppliers.
Rivals feast on Intel woes
Shares of Samsung Electronics and TSMC rose as the cocaine nose-jobs of Wall Street believe that Intel will outsource more chip manufacturing to cover its 7nm failure.
Analysis: Interesting marketing that works
I have been around to vividly remember 350 nm and the first Pentium and AMD K5/K6 processors, and since that time, I have tracked the microprocessors and GPU market. It went swiftly from 350 to 250nm and later to 180, 130, 90, 65, 45, 32nm, and 14nm. It took some ten significant geometry shrinking and power reductions to get to 10nm and even to get to 7nm. Apple, in collaboration with TSMC, is just months away from announcing 5nm chips, but the real question is, do nanometers matter?
Trump needs to explain what he promised
The US Democrats are smelling a rat after TSMC announced plans to build a US-based $12 billion plant on the same day that it kicked one of its best customers, Huawei, in the supply chain.
Conditio sine qua non
After weeks of speculation, TSMC has officially confirmed that Taiwan based TSMC announced its intention to build and operate an advanced semiconductor fab in Arizona, United States.
TSMC 7nm, next-gen Hopper 5nm
There have been rumors for quite some time about the Nvidia Ampere and the manufacturing nod. Nvidia’s first AI-based solution comes from TSMC, while some GPUs will be manufactured by Samsung too.
A way to get enough GPUs to partners
According to our sources, AMD might have tapped Samsung for the Navi 14 GPU that is powering the recently launched Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics card.
Not aware of any such request
TSMC has dismissed rumours that the US government was forcing it to cancel its lucrative contracts with Huawei.
