Interestingly, the interview also reveals that NVIDIA did not intend to make Turing on TSMC's 12nm process. The goal was reportedly to fab Turing on Samsung's 10nm process, but that plan got shelved. However, Turing may see an 8nm shrink in the future.
The PC Watch interview also states that NVIDIA's "Turing" architecture was originally designed for Samsung 10 nanometer silicon fabrication process, but was faced with delays and redesigning for the 12 nm process. This partially explains how NVIDIA hasn't kept up with the generational power-draw reduction curve of the previous 4 generations.Via: TPU
