Report: TSMC's 28nm IC output is advancing faster than expected

12/6/2012 | ·

After struggling to make enough semiconductors with 28-nanometer features earlier this year, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing is ahead of projections on its output by the end of 2012, with the possibility of turning out 75,000 to 80,000 300-millimeter silicon wafers with 28-nanometer chips this month, the Taiwan Economic News reports. Advanced Micro Devices, Nvidia, Qualcomm and other TSMC customers should be able to receive their full allocations of 28-nanometer chips as a result. Meanwhile, Nvidia is said to have chosen TSMC to potentially make Nvidia's next-generation "Maxwell" graphics processors with a 20-nanometer process in 2014.
