TSMC Begins Volume Production of 16nm FinFET Process –
Nvidia Pascal GP100 GPU Among the Products in Production
" You said in no uncertain terms that NVDA needed Intel CPU technology in your initial post. I asked you what that was and I’m still waiting for an answer."
Back at you... what part of NVidia specific GPU technology did INtel need ??
Deal is already done for now... future deals will be negotiated with the technology at that time.
If / when the time comes, INtel will have a plethora of CPU patents to choose from.
You entirely underestimate all the lawsuits from government agencies INtel had to quell
and INtel had to negotiate with a clear violation of a bus license agreement.
"I gave the opinion of “better than 50% chance” a deal gets done at all."
OK... you've got an opinion.... how could anyone challenge that...
You reserve speculation for yourself..!!
Truth is... you don't know !!!!!!!!
"So your throw-down about who gets a better deal? Let’s just classify that as your routine deflecting natter.)"
Not deflecting anything... just doubting NVidia will get as sweet a deal as it has now...
You claim I don't know the outcome of a deal in 1.5 yrs from now...
OK, but I do know for certain you don't know the outcome !!!!
We have a measure, of $1.5B over six years, to judge the new deal
that comes in 1.5 yrs.
Do you think NVidia will get the above or better ?
Or what I think, and the deal won't be as sweet for NVidia...
Note: this time around, INtel doesn't have multiple lawsuits
from governments & agencies... Last time around, INtel had strong
incentive to settle...
"NVDA didn't license any CPU IP"
They did license ARM.
As for INtel... NVidia didn't have their own CPU before.
Denver or some NVidia designed CPU core will be on every device NVidia will sell in the next generations.
I don't see how NVidia could design their own CPU without violating some of INtel's patents.
INtel has been getting CPU patents for longer than most on this board have been alive.
So the next licensing deal between INtel/NVidia may not be as sweet for NVidia as the previous one...
Also, NVidia previously got a sweet deal for they were also negotiating INtel wrongly severing the bus license.
INtel needs access to NVidia patents. NVidia won last time around on licensing as it had the leverage.
However, this time around, NVidia needs access to INtel's CPU patents,
as NVidia will be promoting its own CPUs such as Denver and beyond.
"Intel often sells skus at or even less than die cost when it wants to get marketshare"
Also offers $Billions$ in bribes...
"Only AMD has the potential to seriously disturb Intel in the future depending on what ZEN looks like when it comes out of the oven"
I too am interested to see what Jim Keller has managed to cook up...
Xilinx Collaborates with TSMC on 7nm for Fourth Consecutive Generation of All Programmable Technology Leadership and Multi-node Scaling Advantage
Four generations of advanced process technology and 3D ICs, fourth generation of FinFETs
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) announced that it has collaborated with TSMC on the 7nm process and 3D IC technology for its next generation of All Programmable FPGAs, MPSoCs, and 3D ICs. The technology represents the fourth consecutive generation where the two companies have worked together on advanced process and CoWoS 3D stacking technology, and will become TSMC's fourth generation of FinFET technology. The collaboration will provide Xilinx a multi-node scaling advantage and build on its outstanding product, execution, and market success at 28nm, 20nm, and 16nm nodes.
"TSMC has been the foundation of our success at 28nm, 20nm, and 16nm, what we call our 3Peat," said Moshe Gavrielov, President and CEO of Xilinx. "Their outstanding process technology, 3D stacking technology, and foundry services have enabled Xilinx to build an unparalleled reputation for product excellence, quality, execution, and market leadership. They have also helped Xilinx transform its product portfolio with a new generation of SoCs, MPSoCs and 3D ICs, complementing its world class FPGAs. We believe TSMC's 7nm technology will be even more transformative for Xilinx."
"TSMC is pleased to work with Xilinx to enable its fourth generation of breakthrough products," said Mark Liu, President and Co-CEO of TSMC. "Our collaboration will bring about a new generation of scaling and 3D integration advantages, built on a proven track record of collaboration and execution by both companies."
Xilinx plans to introduce new 7nm products in 2017.
"Moores law tells us that new applications will be developed at a faster pace. "
Akfarnorth... you're an IDIOT !!!!!
Repeat: You don't understand what you read... it's above you...
Always surface knowledge... never any depth about NVDA...
Thought your id exists to chase 'will_amd_yu' around the yahoo boards...
Good to know you can respond to another poster... even to support fantasy...
"Every investment is about hope and fantasy and guessing..."
"To be honest, if I truly understand (who does) the business of certain companies like the magician and know what to do..."
Exactly... your post was imagine this and imagine that... just hope and fantasy and guessing
Are you Akfarnorth with a new alias ??
All surface knowledge with NO depth at all....
You've read articles on NVDA... but you don't understand them..
Connecting the dots based on hope & fantasy...
This is a smart move by NVidia.
CUDA locked everyone into NVidia, and most didn't want to learn it anyway.
