Samsung scorer PC CPU-produksjonsordre fra Intel



Samsung has reportedly secured a 'PC CPU' manufacturing order from Intel. This would entail Intel using Samsung's fabs to manufacture its processors. 'PC CPU' is a broad term, interchangeable with 'client CPU,' and could include both notebook and desktop processors, spanning the 'S,' 'H,' 'U,' and 'Y' silicon variants (mainstream desktop, mainstream notebook, ultrabook, and ultra low-power, respectively). Samsung's bouquet of contract-manufacturing covers not just silicon fabrication across 14 nm, but also sub 10 nm nodes, but also provides other key stages of processor manufacturing, including bumping and packaging. Intel would want minimal expenditure in adapting its chip designs to Samsung's nodes

I sitt 20. november-brev til Intels kunder, administrerende direktør og GM for salg, markedsføring og kommunikasjon, nevnte Michelle Johnston Holthaus at selskapet i tillegg til Intels egne produksjonsanlegg, roper i 'støperier' (tredjeparts silisiumproduksjon selskaper) for å møte etterspørselen. Samsung og TSMC leder støperivirksomheten, etterfulgt av slike som GlobalFoundries, UMC, etc. Takk til biffzinker for tipset.
