It doesn't really come as a surprise, but NVIDIA confirmed that it will use TSMC's 20nm process for its future GPUs. Samsung is reportedly also competing for NVIDIA's 20nm contracts, but Phil Eisler, general manager of GeForce GRID Cloud Gaming at NVIDIA, told media that TSMC remains the best choice for NVIDIA.
In an interview conducted by Hankook Ilbo, a daily newspaper published by the Hankook Ilbo Media Group in Seoul, Phil Eisler, general manager of GeForce GRID Cloud Gaming at Nvidia, pointed out that Nvidia has approved TSMC’s 20nm foundry capacity.
Eisler said although his company has evaluated all foundry options, TSMC remains the best choice for his company. He noted that his company has set up long-term cooperation with TSMC, which has persistently provided Nvidia the optimum portfolio of production capacity, technology and pricing.
Samsung Electronics is also reportedly competing for Nvidia’s 20nm foundry contracts.
