Word is going around again that Intel may tap TSMC to manufacture its future Xe GPU. According to a report from the Chinese-language MyDrivers, Intel's upcoming GPUs will use TSMC's 6nm process in 2021 and TSMC's 3nm node in 2022.

According to Intel, the Xe "DG1" GPU will be made on the company's own 10nm process. It's believed that the firm will outsource the production of the Xe "DG2" GPU to TSMC because the latter can produce the chips faster and more economically.

Previously, Intel's official communication indicates that a future Xe would be one of the first parts to use the company's internal 7nm process. It's unknown whether Intel's plans have changed, or whether TSMC will only make certain variants.
