Mobile World Congress will show the depth of its success
The Mobile World Congress is expected to show how well TSMC’s EUV-based process is doing at attracting customers.
Chipzilla goes into meditation mode
Our earlier story from Future Horizon's conference this week went into great and intensive depth about the overall state of the semiconductor market.
But things not too bright for 2019
Malcolm Penn, CEO of British analyst firm Future Horizons, has at least three admirable traits.
Chips are down
TSMC has slashed its full year investment and forecast its sharpest quarterly revenue fall in a decade, joining a string of tech companies warning of a slowdown in global smartphone demand.
Bloomberg’s thinks Chipzilla will go the way of the dinosaurs
The days of Intel dominating chipmaking is now under threat from a company many Americans have never heard of – TSMC.
Industry contacts shared
The mobile industry is definitely outpacing the manufacturing progress of both GPUs and CPUs and this is not going to change anytime soon. Apple lead the industry with millions of 7nm A12 SoCs, Huawei and Qualcomm are joining in, while the PC industry will get them slightly later with much smaller volumes and with the help of small AMD.
All thanks to its 7nm
TSMC is expected to post record revenues for the fourth quarter of 2018 thanks mostly to the contribution coming from its 7nm processing.
Fighting those shortages
According to the latest report, Intel might be outsourcing some of its entry-level processor and chipset production to other foundries, with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) being the only viable option.
Thanks, Intel and Gloflo
TSMC expects 7nm chip sales to account for 10 percent of its 2018 revenues after its rivals decided to give the technology a miss or delayed development.
