That would be a decent buy for Samsung

To be fair I don't think there are actually any associated products from a consumer perspective, pretty much all of GF's current revenue comes from extremely low cost designs(Small non-GP chips built on modern 28nm or 22nm nodes). The only real exception for now is IBMs use of their 14nm nodes, or AMDs use a second source for their Samsung based chips(Ryzen/Polaris). Obviously for 14LPP this was directly licensed from Samsung, though 12LP added more unique features while 12FDX is in some ways quite revolutionary (Though still has its heritage in Samsungs 14nm), but that doesn't mean much when the only major consumer design win so far will be low power IO dies alongside the meat & potatoes TSMC chips in Zen2.
