Reports coming out of Taiwanese based outlets seem to indicate that TSMC is confident in winning orders for Intel's next-generation Xe-HPG GPUs. As reported by IThome (via @harukaze5719), Intel's Xe-HPG GPUs will be produced at TSMC's fabs, making use of their bleeding-edge fabrication technologies. The Taiwan-based sources claim that Intel is likely to utilize TSMC's 6nm process node for its gaming GPUs that will be competing against AMD's RDNA 2 and NVIDIA's Ampere GPU lineup by the time they hit the store shelves.It will definitely be interesting to see how the first new discrete video card from Intel performs. Soon, we'll already get a preview as the Xe-LP graphics will pop up in the coming months as the integrated graphics solution of the new 10nm Tiger Lake mobile processors.
