28 Nm engraving process appears to be well production concerns to GlobalFoundries and TSMC
Two casters GlobalFoundries and TSMC have some large concerns with engraving 28 nm technology and were struggling to meet the orders of their customers, including not least AMD, Nvidia, and Samsung.
Thus number of technological products incorporating components requiring these process of engraving (LP, HP, HPL and HPM) are delayed and currently only GPU Tahiti equipping the Radeon HD 7970 could be available.
Thus, all manufacturers are housed in the same fashion without exception, they must therefore take their evil in patience and wait that manufacturing of TSMC and GloFo be optimized and perfectly mastered hope to get out their products in trade at the earliest.
Is of course the Kepler of Nvidia GPUS to equip the next generation of GeForce scheduled for early April, but also the Southern Islands of AMD HD 7950 must go out late January - early February if all goes well.
And apparently the CEO of TSMC, Mr Chang is confident because he believes that the share of the income reported by 28 nm will be 10% in 2012 against 2% in 2011.
