Back in July Samsung announced 2TB versions of their 850 Pro and 850 Evo solid state drives, but no one had spotted them in the wild. Well that has not changed as they have been found in many stores, are available through Samsung directly, and can be ordered from many online retailers.

NVIDIA still uses TSMC to manufacture their chips, but recently they have moved to Samsung for 14 nm production. TSMC has just announced that they will not make any 20 nm GPUs at all, if anything 20 nm comes out of TSMC it will be low power ASICs.
