    Re: TSMC and GlobalFoundries resolve legal disputes

    I wonder if TSMC played hard ball. Both parties have a lot to lose but TSMC is so much bigger and has a much bugger portfolio that could help GF.

    This could mean that GFs lawsuit did have some legs on it.

    But then TSMC reminded them of the size difference and offered a way out that is cross beneficial to both parties. GF knowing this got a good deal and TSMC doesn't have to worry about GF. Out of all the ways these two lawsuits could have gone, this is the best case for GF and the consumers.

    Very surprised this wasn't dragged out...

    ...but what is the future of GF? Last time I heard they have abandoned RnD on lower lithography chips.
