It is not simply Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd (TSMC) that is setting up manufacturing fab plants in the USA, nevertheless it seems like Samsung is becoming a member of in on the enjoyable, too.

Samsung Foundry has filed the suitable paperwork with authorities in Arizona, New York, and Texas in order that it could possibly construct a next-gen semiconductor manufacturing facility within the US, based on our associates at AnandTech. The brand new facility would price over $17 billion, create over 1800 jobs, and would see it made someplace close to Austin, Texas.
We do not know what node Samsung would make at this new facility, however we must always count on a next-gen 3nm node on the very least. Samsung Foundry already has an enormous 640-acre web site referred to as ‘S2’ in Austin, Texas with the plan submitted to the federal government of Texas would see the corporate constructing a 7 million sq. toes (650,000 sq. metres) facility subsequent to their present S2 plant.
Now do not forget that TSMC is tight with just about all main tech corporations: AMD, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, Sony… however Samsung and NVIDIA teamed up for the 8nm node that’s used for the Ampere GPUs and GeForce RTX 3000 collection graphics playing cards.
Perhaps the longer term is NVIDIA constructing its GPUs within the USA with Samsung and/or TSMC — and possibly this new Samsung fab plant will make the next-generation GPUs of the longer term for NVIDIA in 2023 and past. I assume we’ll have to attend and see.
