TSMC to Offer 12nm Process

TSMC is upgrading its 16nm process, likely to 12nm. Presently the best process on the market is 10nm by Samsung in making Snapdragon for Qualcomm. TSMC will also provide 10nm process for iPhone this year. 12nm will be TSMC’s answer to over-order on 10nm and counter measure to 14nm from competitors.
