Intel gives up completely and hands more chips to TSMC

According to the Intel The published recruitment information shows , It's hiring more chip manufacturing sites 、 Tape-out 、 Encapsulation personnel , This is interpreted as the fact that it will send more field staff to TSMC , Make sure that the chips it gives to TSMC are in normal production , This means that it will give more chips to TSMC in the future .

Intel We have been leading the global market , But in the 6 Put into production years ago 14nmFinFET After the process began to stop , It wasn't put into production until last year 10nm process , Now it announces 7nm The process will be delayed until at least next year , As a result, it is losing its competitive edge in the chip manufacturing process .

TSMC and Samsung, two of the world's largest chip manufacturers, are here 6 During the period of two years, it has basically continued 1-2 It takes one year to upgrade the pace of advanced process , This year they have been put into production 5nm process , It is expected to be put into production next year 3nm process , Further ahead of in advanced process Intel.

The backwardness in chip manufacturing technology has given Intel Causing trouble .Intel Could have been in PC The market is dominant , One of its major dependence is the leading edge of the chip process , In the early years, it was completely suppressed by the leading edge of the process AMD, The other is to maintain a leading edge in chip architecture research and development , This is known as tick-tock tactical .

AMD stay PC After losing the market competition , Had to sell the chip manufacturing business to get money to survive , Later, they had to sell office buildings to raise funds for research and development Zen framework , But with it Zen Architecture is successful , Plus the support of the advanced technology of TSMC ,AMD stay PC The market has made a comeback , The market share is rising , and Intel The market share of the market is falling .

In the face of a bad situation , last year Intel For the first time, some chips were handed over to TSMC , I hope to rely on the support of TSMC , Get rid of the current lag behind in chip manufacturing technology AMD The situation of , At the same time, it's just launched 10nm The process is mainly used to produce more important server chips , This is the first time since its establishment that it has outsourced chip manufacturing to a chip foundry enterprise .

Perhaps it has eased its predicament by outsourcing chip manufacturing to TSMC , Therefore, according to the recruitment situation, the industry predicted that it would outsource more chips to TSMC .Intel It's also imperative to do so , It needs to concentrate more resources on developing advanced technology , At the same time, its business focus has shifted to server chips ,PC The processor is placed in a secondary position , So I will PC Processors and so on SOC It is reasonable that the chip should be handed over to TSMC .

Intel This means that it has realized that it can't keep up with the steps of TSMC and Samsung in chip manufacturing process , And you have to make that choice , And according to this trend, the process gap between it and the latter two chip factories will become larger and larger , In the end, it is likely to endanger its server chip business , because AMD Cooperation with TSMC is stepping up efforts to attack the server chip market .
