[Press Release] TSMC announce 28nm process (Q3 2010)

Amidst rumours of a low-yielding 40nm process and both ATI and nVidia moving fabrication from TSMC to Globalfoundries, TSMC have announced their 28nm high-K metal gate Low Power process.

The new process is expected to start risk production by the end of Q1 2010, sooner than expected, for low-power chips, with high performance chips starting in Q2 2010. Production is expected to start by Q3 2010.
