TSM is going to outspend INTC. Even I know this. Contenders will be bloodied but not knocked out.
The more important issue is the ultimate end users. And so we have APPL and Samsung locked in a struggle for world dominance.
Dam but I love chip equip. It is the only business that wins no matter what happens. I like LRCX but also AMAT and KLAC.
Other than that, I am betting on EUV being something other than an evanescent tease; and 450 wafers.
So are you claiming to represent Israel? Somehow I thought you would better things to do. God dam but I love mental cases. They are the best source of delusion and hallucinocis.
As well as hallitoscis.
Back in the day we called them Mimi, Steinflower, and Barb. Other times we called them MeMe, Swineflower and Barb Hollingsworhless. So if you want to do this recording of mental cases that have nothing to do, how can I stop you.
I have looked at the FinFet cartoon on U-TUBE and it seems that FinFet is a a belated acknowledgement that scaling can exist in a third dimension. That is a cool idea but it still seems to me that Moore's Law will be repealed within my own lifetime.
I can only say that my own limited knowledge of physics acknowledges that "smaller" is only meaningful until we achieve a size so small that quantum mechanics gets us out of a world ruled by Newton and into one ruled by Heisenberg and Einstein.
At that point, seriously new ideas will be needed and I wonder if any will be forthcoming.
I wish I could engage my son in this discussion, because the kid has become an expert in nanotech. He sneered at me for wondering if he had heard of FinFet. Unfortunately, he is into biological stuff.
A friend of mine from the beach told me about the use of biological molecules as ultimate semiconductors. He retired before getting there.
OT: I am retiring this year and going on to greener pastures. The local rag had an article on Mono and the lack of tourists this time of year. We used to have those articles locally and I miss those days.
Best to you and yours,
I agree with you about all that. Now what can we do to eliminate big banks that are too big to fail?
Okay, I will bite. INTC has made nothing yet but if you follow the story line and believe it, EUV is coming in a couple of years. (Sort of like Indiana Jones reaching for the holy grail.)
Oh, I get it. You are mimi and barb and swineflower aliases hired by someone to stir up interest in your acting like an #$%$. I think yahoo could do better than this and request that they do. I have no desire to suppress free speech but hiring a garbage merchant to pump a lost position is not worthy of a quality organization.
I have see a few generations of this kind of yahoo #$%$ and I am going elsewhere. I recommend that you do so as well.
For many years I visited the courthouse in L. A. Central, which has a marvelous bronze sculpture garden. The statue of a skeletal person is dedicated to the 7 million people starved to death in Ukraine during the 1930s. I always saw fresh flowers on the statue.
Putin is the heir of Stalin.
See the poem: "STALIN'S HEIRS" by Yevgeny Yevtushenko.
All the Russians have to do is get rid of Ras Putin and his cronies.
You sound like you been arrested for shoplifting at Nordstroms. Sorry but no info up the chain on this. Enjoy those cops; I hear they are just ready to pick on people and who could blame them..
You are preaching to the converted. If I were hannibal, I would attack this #$%$ with all i had.
Check out the movie "Gangster Squad" with Mickey Cohen attacking holiday ornaments with a Tommy gun.
