After Intel suffered a 14nm processor out of stock incident, all the way "help", followed by the sound, the supply chain in Taiwan, China, early release of the wind said that some of the capacity will be taken over by TSMC, of course, the Korean media is mainly pushing Samsung, this week is to give Intel will entrust the next two generations of 14nm processor products (Commet Lake, Lake Rock Lake, Rocket Lake) to Samsung's 14nm.
However, technically speaking, whether it is for TSMC or Samsung, there are reasonable points. The former has experience in OEM baseband and Atom chip, and it is an old partner. The latter's 14nm is closest to Intel on the hard core, and Samsung itself is Intel's oem customer, after all, there is a notebook business.
However, it turns out that the rumors are still out of shape.
Foreign media learned from Intel internally,And Samsung is indeed negotiating the foundry business, which involves only some simple chip products, such as notebooks, desktop chipsets, not processors, and the specific process involved is not detailed, and even excludes the possibility of 22nm.. Last year, Intel introduced a revised version of the H310C motherboard for the purpose of mitigating 14nm capacity. The chipset “regressed” to the 22nm process.
For the 14nm out of stock issue, CEO Si Ruibo once pointed out that it will be completely solved in the third quarter of this year.
