    TSMC has produced >1 quintillion 7nm transistors since April 2018

    Claims to have fabbed "one billion functional, defect-free 7nm chips" in that time.

    if TSMC was a USA company it would be worth $4 trillion surpassing Apple by twice.

    Intel reckons its 10nm SuperFin technology delivers processor enhancements comparable to a full node transition.
    Is that the same way they reckon benchmarks don't matter anymore and 4 cores is good enough etc? I reckon lots of things, doesn't make them true. Be interesting to see the tests when they finally get released. In 2022 or however long it takes.

    Intels reckoning is based on the performance and capability of 10nm as the starting point. So they're not wrong because 10nm was utter garbage, 10nm+ was a mediocre waste of time and 10nm++ (SF) is where iy was expected to be years ago

    So true, it could even be more, as crazy as it sounds.

    But probably would never grow so big due to the USA politics and laws

    I've personally found it quite amusing how willing most media outlets are to run with Intel's official line on this one. I guess someone at Intel noted how they got away with disappearing Cannon Lake and repeatedly redefining what constitutes a "generation" of the Core architecture, so now they can say whatever they like about their products and have it become fact.
