NVIDIA “Volta” Consumer GPUs To Be Built On TSMC 12nm Process

NVIDIA's consumer GPUs based on the "Volta" architecture will arrive some time in 2018. NVIDIA will be relying on their old faithful fab TSMC, to build those GPUs on a new 12 nm FinFET node that is currently under development.

TSMC Will Be Ready To Take 7nm Orders By April 2017

Many people do not realize that many of the products we use rely heavily on are nothing without the foundries that produce the silicon that powers those products. This makes the progress of the fabs very important to us enthusiasts. We have just heard that TSMC, one of the leading foundries, will be ready to take orders for products on the 7nm node by as early as April 2017. This is very significant to us as this lets us know when we can start expecting GPUs and CPUs based on the same node.

GlobalFoundries Could Skip 10nm and Go Right to 7nm

It has been reported that silicon fabrication company GlobalFoundries is planning to skip development of the 10 nanometer (nm) process, and go right to 7 nm. GlobalFoundries currently operates a 14 nm FinFET node. Last year the company acquired semiconductor manufacturing assets from IBM and will be using them to fast-track its development.

Samsung To Be AMD’s Foundry Partner For Zen and Arctic Islands

It has been confirmed that AMD will be using Samsung as its foundry partner for its next generation GPUs. The upcoming Arctic Islands family of GPUs will be built on the 14 nanometer FinFET LPP (low-power plus) process. NVIDIA will however be building its next generation Pascal GPU family on the 16 nanometer FinFET process and will likely use foundry partner TSMC as they have in the past.

AMD Preparing 14nm FinFET GPUs in 2016

At its Investor Day presentation AMD took a good part of it to talk about GPUs. They announced that they will continue to make GPUs for every segment of the market. The company plans to continue to improve on its Graphics CoreNext architecture, but is really betting on the huge performance / watt increase with its GPUs in 2016. The reason for this increase will be its move to the 14nm FinFET process.
