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.
As an expected trade war looms
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing has reported a 0.9 percent fall in third quarter net profits.
New packaging for its back end
TSMC is attempting to get approval to build a new advanced packaging Fab in Taiwan.
Intel has blinked.
AMD may regain 30 percent of global desktop CPU market share in the fourth quarter of 2018 as Intel continues to lose ground.
6-core CPU 4-core GPU and a lot of AI
Apple’s A12 Bionic is the name of the most important chip inside the iPhone Xs and Xs Max and Xr detailed here. Make no mistake, this is the first to ship 7nm but not the first to sample or be announced, it is actually the third. As believers in the Apple religion don’t care about features unless they have it in their beloved iPhones, they don’t care about the rest of the world.
Announced, but first to ship
Let's get one thing straight right from the start. Apple's iPhone Xs next generation A12 Bionic SoC has been claimed by Apple’s Phil Schiller to be the first on the market. Well, it is the third, as Qualcomm and Huawei have already announced that they sampled or in production of their 7nm Phone SoCs.
Both TSMC don’t worry about GloFo
The news that GlobalFoundries is walking away from 7nm manufacturing brought a lot of uncertainty to AMD’s roadmap and Mark Papermaster the CTO of the company has just posted a blog comforting investors and assuring customers that both CPU and GPU designs at 7nm are in safe hands at TSMC.
