It will depend on Intel, Samsung Foundry, and TSMC
According to Margrethe Vestager, EU's Commissioner for Competition, it's unlikely that the EU will ever become completely independent from other countries for semiconductor supply.
Onwards to N4 by the year end
TSMC has said that its N3 node, which will provide more of a technological leap than N4, will go into volume production in the second half of 2022.
Fighting the global shortage
TSMC, the world's largest contract chipmaker, and Sony are considering joint construction of a semiconductor factory in western Japan amid a global chip shortage.
Its good to be the King
Contract chipmaking giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing is jacking up its prices on products by as much as 20 percent because there is a chip shortage and it is a damn fine time to make a bit of cash.
Shows Intel Xe SS (Super Sampling) as well
During its 2021 Architecture Day Intel gave a few more details about its upcoming Intel Arc GPUs, including the full roadmap, more details about the Arc Alchemist GPU, as well as the Intel Xe SS (Super Sampling) technology.
Asia’s most valuable firm
The world's largest chipmaker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has overtaken Chinese tech behemoth Tencent to become Asia's most valuable firm.
Jumping by a fifth
TSMC said that its quarterly sales and forecast revenue for the current quarter will jump by at least a fifth, thanks to a pandemic-led surge in global demand for semiconductors that power smartphones, laptops and cars.
Donating them to the government to bypass China ban
Foxconn and TSMC have agreed to buy 10 million COVID-19 vaccine doses for the island of Taiwan. The two companies will be paying up to $35 a dose of the BioNTech vaccine and donating them to the government.
Ready for next year
Apple and Intel will be the first adopters of TSMC's next-generation chip production technology ahead of its deployment as early as next year.
TSMC might be expanding the project’s scope
The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn that TSMC’s plans to build a 5nm process node in Arizona might be considerably more ambitious than thought.
