Nvidia's GP107 GPUs are rumoured to be made on Samsung's 14nm FinFET LPP (Low Power Plus) manufacturing process, which is a change from Nvidia's existing Pascal designs, all of which are built using TSMC's 16nm FinFET process.

This means that Nvidia's upcoming GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti GPUs may be Nvidia's first GPUs to use Samsung's 14nm FinFET manufacturing process, which is very similar to the GlobalFoundries 14nm FinFET process that AMD uses on their Polaris GPUs.

Reports from 3DCenter also claim that Nvidia are looking to move the production of their existing GPU designs over to Samsung's 14nm Low Power Plus process, as TSMC are reportedly having capacity problems with their 16nm FinFET chip production due to the high demand for 16nm products.

Samsung's foundries are said to be much less busy than TSMC, allowing Samsung to take up the slack and produce Nvidia's GP107 GPU designs. It is possible that Samsung is creating GPUs based on Nvidia's existing 16nm designs for a "Pascal Refresh" in 2017, though at this time Nvidia has not made any official announcements.

The difference between the two isn't much. Roughly the same density between them. What would matter most is cost/waferQuote
