    Re: Nvidia Pascal GPU to be built on TSMC's 16nm FinFET process

    I saw an article a couple of days ago wrt Zen. Apparently AMD has delayed release of Zen until Q4 of 2016 due to yield issues with 14nm FinFet. This article has stated that Samsung has been making the 14nm node, whereas TSMC is making the 16nm node. Lets hope Samsung get the yield issues sorted soon.

    Ye olde rumour mill. There's really nothing besides rumours suggesting Zen is delayed in any way, and certainly nothing concrete. Same thing with 14nm yields; Samsung have been mass-producing processors, albeit smaller ones for ages now (and apparently GloFo have been doing the same). Granted they might be on a different node i.e. LPP vs LPE though. Also, AMD are most likely to contract out CPU production to GloFo, not Samsung, although they do co-operate and GloFo are now apparently using the Samsung-licensed 14nm node.

    Don't pay too much attention to the 16nm vs 14nm naming itself though.
