    Love it. TSMC and Intel need some proper competition.

    Especially with the PRC sniffing around Taiwan's doorstep...

    Whilst I would agree that China can't be trusted, invading/annexing Taiwan would, I think, be a step to far even for China. The consequences for their international trade would be dire and they know it.

    Poland was seen as a step too far. It may be a step too far for now, but they're slowly pushing further and further.

    Russia already set the precedent with Crimea dude... the gutless west has shown it won't do jack. Other than maybe lodge a strongly worded letter of complaint with the UN.

    Furthermore, PRC legitimately believes that Taiwan is a breakaway province, so it wouldn't even be an "invasion" in their eyes...

    Taiwan is a strategic crown jewel, precisely for TSMC (and a tonne of other high-tech manufacturing). The faster Samsung gets their **** together, and TSMC starts building their newest fabs in the US and other countries, the better.

    It wasn't just that part, it was the app as well (where they wasted tons of money due to not listening to feedback).

    This is long overdue. I can't understand why there's been so little fab capacity for so long, in a climate of such high demand.

    Well, hopefully we can see some good changes in RAM Supplies.
