TSMC is aiming to have 10nm production ready next year

 

TSMC is aiming to have 10nm production ready next year despite the fact that their 16nm node was delayed by 9 months, which has reportedly caused Nvidia and other chip makers to use Samsung's 14nm FinFET process.  

The Taiwanese foundry also says that they still plan to have their 7nm process available in 2017 and that their issues/ delays are behind them. 

 

TSMC is aiming to have 10nm production ready next year  

TSMC has already shown working 10nm silicon, so let's hope that they do not suffer the yield issues that they have had with 16nm. 

The next few years will be very interesting in terms of process tech as, this may be the first time that the other foundries will have process tech which will arrive in the same timeframe as Intel's, as Intel's 10nm process is reported to be coming in early 2017. If TSMC meet their estimates they may have chips made on their 10nm process before Intel, which is a great position for them to be in.

So that means ready to start making by the end of 2016 with the consumer getting products at the end of 2017 then Quote

they have been promising and not delivering since 32nm, they are to blame for us being stuck on 28nm gpu's for so long(global foundries aswell) and their 16nm is not suitable for high power devices at this point, not to mention 20nm interconnect, perhaps 10nm with 16nm interconnect, but there is no way they will have 10nm parts by 2017 in the market, they have delayed the nodes many times over by now if anyone can do it it intel and samsung plus both have superior nodesQuote

Don't think they will beat Intel though. Intel will be full 10nm unlike a 10nm and 16nm interconnect. GPUs probably won't get a shrink till next year and that's if large amounts of progress is made.Quote
