Taiwanese media claims TSMC has won a big order from Intel. Word on the street is that Intel wants to outsource more of its processor production, while keeping its crown jewels manufactured in-house.

Intel will reportedly use TSMC's 5nm N5 process in 2022 for the production of some smaller Core processors. It's not the first time Intel is outsourcing some of its production.

TSMC has already made some lower-end stuff like Atom parts for Intel and the future Xe-HPG gaming GPU will even be manufactured entirely by TSMC.
