NVIDIA confirmed to use TSMC 16nm FinFET process

Posted on Thursday, December 04 2014 @ 15:31:10 CET by

TSMC is gearing up to move to mass production with its 16nm FinFET process around July 2015. The foundry confirmed NVIDIA will be using this process but as WCCF Tech noticed, AMD is missing from TSMC's present partner list which raises questions about which process and which supplier AMD will be using for its future GPUs.
16nm FinFET tech is now ready for development since it has passed the required verification procedures and about 60 projects are already underway. Mass production is scheduled to start sometime in mid 2015. The known products in development on 16 nm are Avago, Freescale, LG, MediaTek, NVIDIA, Renesas and Xilinx. The list is obviously not exhaustive in nature but AMD should still have been included in this short list. There is the slight chance that the reporter did not consider AMD an important enough company to mention but the chance of that in my opinion is quite low unless the reporter had zero knowledge of the PC Hardware ecosystem.
