Fast science and technology news on June 1, Nvidia RTX 30 series GPU chip by Samsung 8nm process OEM, the current RTX 40 series turned to TSMC 4N process (5nm customized version), CEO Huang Renxun complained many times last year that TSMC OEM is too expensive, but they can not give up, the next generation of chips continue to use.
CEO Huang Renxun said in an interview this afternoon that he will meet with executives of TSMC, Foxconn and other companies on Friday.
He also mentioned that the next generation of Nvidia chips will continue to be manufactured by TSMC.Not only will chips made in local factories be purchased, some of the orders will also be handed over to TSMC's plant in Arizona.
Although the OEM price of TSMC's advanced technology is the highest in the industry.But Huang Renxun also mentioned two advantages of TSMC, one is huge production capacity, the other is incredible agility.

You know, even Samsung contracted for the RTX 30 game card GPU of 8nm technology, and the A100 acceleration chip of NVIDIA was also manufactured by TSMC.
As for Huang Renxun's next-generation product, although he is not clear what it is, the next-generation GPU has been dug up before. this GPU is code-named Blackwell, which is the first black academician of the National Academy of Sciences.
Among them, the RTX 50 series of Blackwell for game cards will be designed with a single GPU chip.Blackwell for HPC and AI will use MCM multi-chip design, NVIDIA is also familiar with this aspect, now Grace Hooper is encapsulated CPU, GPU two kinds of core.
What is not sure is the process of Blackwell. A lot of previous news has pointed to TSMC's 3nm, but considering the habit of NVIDIA, the 5nm process has only been used for a generation and is unlikely to switch to a higher-cost 3nm process.
In 2024, the Blackwell chip is likely to continue to use 5nm technology for game cards, while AI and computing card versions of Blackwell will be used in 3nm process.
