Intel Reportedly Signs Deal with TSMC To Outsource 3 nm Production
We not too long ago reported on Intel’s target to launch their 7 nm node in 2023 which would put them on observe to directly compete with TSMC’s 3 nm node. It would seem to be like Intel has partially approved defeat according to a new DigiTimes report which alleges that Intel has signed a offer with TSMC to mass-make 3 nm processors beginning H2 2022. The report goes on to detail an arrangement exactly where TSMC producers the bulk of Intel processors with in-property generation predicted to keep on albeit at reduce quantities. This arrangement would also see Intel and TSMC cooperate on two nm items. If this deal turns out to be genuine Intel would develop into TSMC’s second-biggest purchaser just after Apple.
