Samsung is reportedly making 14nm CPUs for Intel as supply issues persist

Samsung Begins Manufacturing Intel Chips

Samsung Begins Manufacturing Intel Chips

A report from South Korea reveals that Intel looked at several other companies that could have helped it resolve the chip crisis, including not only Samsung, but also TSMC. It will be interesting to see which CPU lines are shifted to Samsung, if there are lines drawn between ranges of CPUs produced by Samsung and Intel, and how this output is marketed. "Intel CPU shortages have worsened quarter-over-quarter the shortages are now impacting our commercial PC and premium consumer PC Q4 forecasted shipments". Allegedly, Samsung has received a "PC CPU" from Intel, which means Samsung will use its manufacturing facilities to produce Intel's processors.

Industry watchers say Samsung Electronics is highly likely to win an order from Intel because only leading foundry companies in the world can produce Intel CPUs.

The Investor separately confirmed the news, citing its own "semiconductor industry sources" regarding the Intel-Samsung deal.

Among the world's foundry companies, there are TSMC, which is the world's No. 1 company, and Samsung Electronics, which are the world's second largest, and Global Foundry, which is the third largest.

So this report has something of a ring of truth about it given the overall picture, and perhaps at this point, it's unlikely Intel really cares how CPU production is upped - but just that it has to be ramped up, and quickly, before the confidence of big manufacturers really starts to ebb. Apparently, Intel has opted for Samsung rather than TSMC, which is used extensively by its rival AMD, and now has little extra business. Samsung Electronics will be given a priority as TSMC maintains a partnership with AMD, the world's second-largest CPU producer and a big rival to Intel, and Huawei which is subject to USA sanctions, they noted.
