Please make our chips
Intel has talked with TSMC and Samsung about the Asian companies making some of its best chips, but the Silicon Valley pioneer is still holding out hope for last minute improvements in its own production capabilities.
TSMC chairman Mark Liu warns
The US-Chinese trade war is driving up costs and limiting the flow of ideas, the chairman of TSMC warned.
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

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.
