SemiAccurate: Intel wants to produce Samsung GPU Xe chipsets

Intel is already bluntly exploring its capabilities to leverage the production capacity of other companies, with Samsung and TSMC being essentially the only two that come to mind, as they are the only ones with the necessary capacity and advanced manufacturing technology. However, there is not much free capacity, but that is why we learned yesterday about the increased capital budget of TSMC, which means further investment in production.

It makes sense for Intel to use the production capacity of both Samsung and TSMC, of ​​course for different products. So he may be right both TrendForcethat Intel will manufacture some of its processors at TSMC, as well as SemiAccuratethat Samsung will use to produce chipsets graphics Xe. These would be very different products, and Intel would be able to make the most of what it is offered to lighten its own factories, where it has long sought to tune the 10nm manufacturing process, which will probably never become what was once again. in the plan, as the yield is currently supposed to be somewhere above 50 percent.

After all, Intel also has big problems with the development of the 7nm process, for which it has been clear for many months that it will not come in time to be able to use the production of the first products intended for it. These are specifically the Ponte Vecchio chips, on which Intel also wants to base a new supercomputer, with which it wants to enter the performance era of exascale.

However, in order not to make it easy, we also have information that Intel wants to use the 7nm process of TSMC for the production of DG2, or chips for game Xe-HPG. So far, we can take rather confirmation that Intel is currently intensively negotiating with potential partners and has more options.

And maybe today we will learn something more, because Intel is going to publish its financial results for the whole of last year, and as usual, the time will come for questions and answers.
