As I said in an article yesterday, Intel is currently trying to pull one of AMD’s biggest and best partners to its side! We are talking about the largest semi-conductor manufacturer on the planet, TSMC!
After all, if you don’t know, Intel is again failing to develop new production processes. Since after the 10nm ‘fail’, we are now witnessing the 7nm ‘fail’ … And as such, as the company cannot wait for the problems to be resolved, it has to find a solution quickly! Which apparently means getting a partner to be part of the production for you.
The problem here is that TSMC is not keen to increase production just because of Intel! Do you know why? For simply not being able to see a medium / long term partnership here. In other words, Intel will have to compete with AMD (and other companies), in order to get its hands on the 7nm production capacity that is now free after Apple jumped to 5nm, and Huawei was forced to to cut relations with the manufacturer.
Intel vs AMD: Now the rivalry will hurt!
Therefore, competition between Intel and AMD has risen in pitch in recent years, and it looks like it will rise even more now that both will have to fight for the same production capacity, in the same exact partner.
Thus, thanks to Intel’s difficulties, AMD has even surpassed its rival in the value of each share on the stock exchange. And apparently, the rivalry will increase even more when the time comes to put money on the table to buy production from the partner in the world of production. In the end, it seems that Intel is now having various types of meetings with TSMC executives to get their hands on much of the production of the 7nm lines … However, AMD is ready to enter the war, not wanting its asset (7nm) to reach the hands of its biggest rival in the processor market.
Having said all this, despite the fact that TSMC is not keen to increase production. The manufacturer is expected to double the capacity of the 7nm lines in 2021, while losing one of the biggest customers, Huawei. So now it remains to be seen who will be able to keep all the free production for next year… That is, who will want to spend more money!

Since I was very young I became interested in computers and technology in general, I had my first PC at 10 and at 15 I built my first tower, since then I never stopped. Whatever technology is, I’m in the front row to find out more.
