Unlike the TSMC, Samsung is very aggressive at the 7-nm node to mount the 7-nm EUV process, leading to progress. Although the 7-nm EUV process was mass-produced last year, Samsung's own Exynos 9820 processor did not catch up to the 7-nm EUV process, and the real production would wait until the end of the year to 2020.
In order to compete for customers, besides Samsung's own Exynos processor, IBM also decided to hand over the processors after Power 9 to Samsung's 7Nm EUV process agent, but the power 10 processor has not yet been officially announced.
NVIDIA currently uses TSMC's 16-nm and 12-nm FFN processes, but it is rumored that the next generation of Ampere chips will also turn to Samsung's 7-nm EUV process, which is expected to be available in 2020.
Another customer who defected from TSMC may be Qualcomm, whose current flagship processors, Qianlong 855 and X55 baseband, are all manufactured by TSMC at 7nm. Samsung at 10nm node has manufactured Qianlong 835 and Qianlong 835 processors. Now, on 7Nm EUV node, Samsung is known to be building a new generation of Qianlong processors, that is, the rumored Qianlong.
At present, the specifications and time to market of MYL 865 are still confusing, but if Samsung snatches back the Qualcomm order of 7Nm EUV process, it will obviously give a very attractive offer, which will help manufacturers reduce the cost of chip manufacturing.
