Samsung will be fabbing the Snapdragon 865 chipset

11 June 2019
Qualcomm reportedly believes that Samsung's 7nm EUV process has advantages over TSMC's 7nm node.

    CptPower, 12 Jun 2019They will. Soon or later Huawei will make everything own. Starting from scratch in chip fabrication at this point in time is impossible no matter how much money you throw at it.

            Compared to Qualcomm exynos is crap just a one quarter inch better from mediatek.

                Seem obvious who not gonna get those SD865 early; everyone. This look like going to be exclusive to Samsung again being the first phone to release with it.

                  avoid trade wars

                    anonymous, 11 Jun 2019Yes, and the loser here is the US.This is a really ignorant statement. How does the USA lose from Samsung gaining business in an area where Samsung has already been doing business for years.

                      What's the point? Samsung is not even selling SD chip-based phones to the Asia market.

                        Anonymous, 11 Jun 2019Samsung needs to start using Snapdragon chipsets in all mod... moreWell with the Exynos now on the rise on both CPU and GPU sides now, I think we could stick with Exynos for a bit longer.

And its alpha customers (which use pre-production tools and custom designs) had already started risk production of their chips using its N5 manufacturing process, which essentially means that the technology is on-track for high-volume manufacturing (HVM) in 2020.

                            TSMC’s N5 is the company’s 2nd generation fabrication technology that uses both deep ultraviolet (DUV) as well as extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography. The process can use EUVL on up to 14 layers (a tangible progress from N7+, which uses EUVL on four non-critical layers) to enable significant improvements in terms of density. TSMC says that when compared to N7 (1st Gen 7 nm, DUV-only), N5 technology will allow chip developers to shrink die area of their designs by ~45%, making transistor density ~1.8x higher. It will also increase frequency by 15% (at the same complexity and power) or reduce power consumption by 20% power reduction (at the same frequency and complexity).

                                Gone are the days where 20nm TSMC Apple chip beat 16nm SAMSUNG made Apple chip in power effeciency,thermal efficiency and performance

                                SAMSUNG has a massive lead small node fabrication
