Samsung: Full speed ahead for 10nm, EUV deploys at the 7nm node

Samsung: Full speed ahead for 10nm, EUV deploys at the 7nm node For the past 12 months, Samsung’s foundry division has occupied a leadership position at the 14nm node.The image above shows why companies continue to claw for EUV lithography, despite its problems, power costs, and vastly increased cooling requirements.

How Intel lost $10 billion — and the mobile market

How Intel lost $10 billion — and the mobile market How did Intel manage to spend up to $10 billion dollars and have so little show for it?Three of these companies — GlobalFoundries, Samsung, and TSMC — are known as pure-play foundries or merchant foundries.

How Intel lost the mobile market, part 2: the rise and neglect of Atom

How Intel lost the mobile market, part 2: the rise and neglect of Atom The common explanation for why Intel lost the mobile market is that its x86 mobile processors either drew too much power, or weren’t powerful enough compared with their ARM counterparts.Despite being initially starved for resources, 32nm Atom chips were competitive in the midrange mobile market.

Sony announces new Slim PS4, will bring HDR lighting to all platforms with software update

Sony announces new Slim PS4, will bring HDR lighting to all platforms with software update The big news at Sony’s PlayStation unveil was the PS4 Pro, but it’s not the only new console coming to market.It’s mostly been touted as a 4K feature, but the PS4 lacks a UHD Blu-ray player and Sony only mentioned 4K streaming support for the PS4 Pro, not the PS4.

AMD reveals new Radeon GPU architecture, codenamed Vega

AMD reveals new Radeon GPU architecture, codenamed Vega These entry-level to midrange cards would be followed by a full high-end refresh based on a new GPU design, codenamed Vega.One of the most common misconceptions about GPU RAM allocation and the popular freeware utility GPU-Z is that GPU-Z is capable of telling you how much RAM the GPU is actually using.

Intel claims three-year advantage on 10nm, wants to redefine process nodes

Intel claims three-year advantage on 10nm, wants to redefine process nodes It also laid out what it believes is a better metric for calculating process nodes in the future, though we suspect TSMC, Samsung, and GloFo may all disagree.At 10nm, Intel is moving the contact to directly under the gate, which frees up additional transistor space.

Foundry Futures: TSMC, Samsung, GlobalFoundries, and Intel Gear Up For 7nm and Beyond

Foundry Futures: TSMC, Samsung, GlobalFoundries, and Intel Gear Up For 7nm and Beyond Over the past few years, companies like Samsung, TSMC, and GlobalFoundries have all jockeyed for the pole position in the highly competitive (and extremely expensive) foundry business.This is most apparent with Intel; its 10nm node is expected to be equivalent to 7nm from TSMC.

ASML Claims Major EUV Lithography Milestone

ASML Claims Major EUV Lithography Milestone Manufacturers like Intel, TSMC, GlobalFoundries, and Samsung have continued to advance 193nm lithography in the absence of a functional EUV alternative.Now, ASML is claiming to have solved one of the major problems keeping EUV lithography from release, though it’s doing so in extremely carefully worded language.
