Hmmm, it is unlikely to make much of a difference. did not admit any wrongdoing, blah blah, .. GLO-FO are behind T.S.M.C. so far you can probably tell that they will deteriorate into a fabulous low-end dress. Its final times are now for silicon, even its possible information fails at this point (probably security in foundries is more important than at any other time and notes that Intel cannot go from 14 nm to 10 nm after 4 years , will extend to 6) You are watching a race of 3 horses, Intel vs TSMC vs Samsung and Intel are in fourth position.Glo-Fo will take some money and leave them (if they win) they do not have much room for maneuver.MODIFY; I’m going to add some people maybe a little new. Once upon a time there were a dozen or more high-end silicon chip manufacturers, all running to produce smaller, faster silicon chips. of lower power (not all the chips are of CPU) It is slowly reduced at the end (what we would generally pay a lot of money for cpu) to 3 because in simple terms, you have a lot of fanatics of the engineering / scientific community looking of how to produce smaller chips, and we have passed the point where luck and inspiration are not involved. Adds commitment and motivation to the mix (Intel had no competition in the X86 cpu market for 5 years), so they caught on with research; (probably – my opinion?) no one will ever know for sure, but in 2017 they didn’t know that a dozen chips were as competitive as they were until launch. Sidenote, report what I said earlier about security, but anyway, the information was captured deeply asleep with hangover feet on the desk at 9am.Glo-fo and A.M.D. have been tied together by a trade agreement since A.M.D. it’s almost failed but GLO-FO has reached 12 m, ryzen 2XXX were even better, glo-fo hadn’t been snoozing and well, those are probably still the best VFM CPUs for general use / gaming on the market. something intensive an r5 2600 has great value but I digress. A few months later, GLO-FO just raised his hands and said we can’t do 7 nanometers. He’s really involved. (they could license an Intellectual Property production method later from Samsung perhaps but probably will not reach, probably the license would have further research that limits the clauses ending their tender because those who want to reveal trade secrets to a competitor to simply leave them recover?) The failure of GLO-FO has released AMD by their agreement and could use T.S.M.C. without penalty of $ (TSMC equipment seemed strangely always slightly better at first impression. Perhaps it is AMD that is clocking everything at Max to compare it to Intel / NVIDIA since the AMD equipment tends to use less shortcuts than Nvidia) but now we are where we are and TSMC are at least 18 months before Intel. This is a minimum. Intel has just started building more 14-nanometer manufacturing plants to serve OE, M. Contracts like Dell. (This is a minimum year) Meanwhile, what will I tell my elderly father to buy this time? Oh yes, in the last years 2200 g of ryzen pc. (O 3200 g and 4200 g even if they are 20 months ..) Following the roadmap “, T.S.M.C. will be on 5 nanometers when intel will have 10 nanometers on the desktop, but you have to come back first to what I said. There is no guarantee that the information will advance over 14 nm for the desktop, 10nm will be in research for 6 years now of the launch. Do it however you want but I wouldn’t buy shares, they could end up getting their chips made by Samsung.
