NVIDIA’s next-gen “Pascal” GPUs to be manufactured using TSMC’s 16nm FinFET node

Pascal

According to a latest report from Business Korea, NVIDIA has decided to use TSMC’s 16nm FinFET node for manufacturing its next-gen ‘Pascal’ GPUs.

It was earlier expected that both Samsung and TSMC would be mass producing ‘Pascal’ GPUs, but NVIDIA decided to go solely with TSMC in the end. The main reason behind this decision is said to be the fact that NVIDIA believes going with the world’s largest foundry would ensure greater product consistency.

Experts however, believe that the main reason behind Samsung losing the contract to TSMC is down its lack of experience in producing GPUs. Samsung has only two years of experience producing GPUs, so TSMC definitely has the upper hand as far as experience goes.

NVIDIA ‘Pascal’ GPUs are expected to pack High-Bandwidth Memory 2 with stacked DRAM chips integrated on to the GPU die. Apart from HBM2, ‘Pascal’ will also feature Unified Memory and NVLink.
