During last week's earnings call, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang mentioned his firm is deeply engaged with TSMC for many nodes to come, including 10nm. Huang said the vast majority of their wafers will be bought from TSMC, they're currently at 20nm and expecting to ramp 16nm.

He added that NVIDIA is always on to look out for new foundry suppliers as competition keeps everybody sharp, but he stressed that TSMC is the firm's primary partner and gave no indication that this is going to change anytime soon.
“We are constantly evaluating foundry suppliers, ….[but] we largely purchase from TSMC, the vast majority of our wafers we buy from TSMC. We are in 20nm, we are expecting to ramp 16nm. We are deeply engaged with TSMC for many, many nodes to come, including 10nm.” CEO, NVIDIA

“There are just so many ways for us to deliver energy efficiency and performance,” said Mr. Jen Hsun, CEO of Nvidia Corp “I would not get too obsessed about the process technology all by itself.”….“But we are always looking at new foundry suppliers, and competition keeps everybody sharp……But for all intents and purposes, TSMC is our primary partner.”
