Huawei's HiSilicon division enters the top 10 global semiconductor ranking
Huawei's HiSilicon chips are getting increasingly popular these days and it shows. According to the most recent market analysis, the fabless chipmaker entered the top 10 global semiconductor rankings and it's actually the first Chinese company ever to do so.

TSMC benefits a lot from the growing market as the giant recorded 45% increase in revenues year-over-year mainly due to the aforementioned companies with their 7nm chip orders.
