Nvidia may Skip 20nm and go straight to 16nm finFET

It looks like Nvidia may skip the 20nm process entirely, but what does that mean for us?

(There is also some speculation on the 800 Seires!)

Is the "Read more here" supposed to be a link? If so it doesn't seem to be working for me.

Been seeing these rumours all morning, and to be honest I'm not feeling it.. the next logical step in manufacture would be to go 22nm or 20nm skipping it would be financially disasterous for nVidia, as waiting for 16nm is a loooong way off. And there are the gate hurdles and 3D finfet (vias logic) (I'll cover that later).

Until I see a roadmap or nVidia press release I'm taking a back seat.

Excellent write up WYP

TSMC Update: 09/07/2014
Quote:
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) plans to speed up the development of its 10nm process to fend off competition from Samsung Electronics, which reportedly has landed 14nm FinFET chip orders from Qualcomm, according to industry sources.

TSMC and Samsung are currently competing fiercely in the development of FinFET process, with the Korea-based foundry house utilizing a 14nm process and TSMC a 16nm node. Both the 14nm and 16nm processes are scheduled to enter volume production in early 2015.

TSMC has been pioneering the development of the FinFET technology and originally planned to begin producing 16nm FinFET chips in the fourth quarter of 2014, said the sources.

Nevertheless, TSMC has rescheduled the commercial production of 16nm FinFET process, and instead plans to roll out a more advanced 16nm FinFET Plus process, which will consume less power and further reduce die sizes.

However, Samsung's development of its 14nm process has been faster than what TSMC has thought, pushing the Taiwan-based foundry house to accelerate the development of the 10nm technology in order to maintain its lead, commented the sources.

Here we go again, using mid range chips giving high end part numbers.....

I would love to get all the top brass of Nvidia together and 1 by one slap them across the face with a mallet and just say to them "No"

Such rumour, much speculation. To much rumour and speculation surrounding Nvidia Maxwell at the moment

I think they will release the 800 series Q4 this year, or maybe Q1-Q2 next year which will be 28nm parts. And then during Q3-Q4 2015 they will release the 900 series which will either be 16nm if this is true, or 20nm. Until we hear it from the hourses mouth we wont know for sure though.

This article from 2 years ago was kind of painting the picture back then.

The only thing you can take for certain is their complete silence on the matter. If Nvidia had a new GTX 880 that was 30% faster than the 780 Ti in the works ready to be released, you can bet we would have heard some juicy details about it, particularly at Computex.

Don't get your hopes up for something truly new later this year, even AMD being silent on their new GPUs doesn't bode well for something new later this year either.
