TSMC’s 55nm Process For GPUs In Q2 2007

TSMC plans to roll out the 55-namometer process technology in the second quarter of 2007 in a bid to further widen the gap in the competition between it and rivals. TSMC will first apply the leading-edge process technology to logic chips, including graphics chips and chipsets. TSMC has decided to step up research and development of 55nm and 45nm process technologies. Volume production of the 80nm process technology, with Nvidia and ATI has already started. They expect the 65nm process technology to enter into volume production next quarter, with Qualcomm, Freescale Semiconductor and Altera to also adopt the process. TSMC will begin the pilot production of low-power 55nm process in the third quarter next year.
