TSMC seems to be the loser here. They are the ones doing all the heavy research into 7nm and beyond nodes, whereas GF has already pulled out of that race. Kinda screwed themselves over here.

That depends on who has the better case in court, and if Globalfoundries has the capital to attempt to become a leading-edge manufacturer again.

If GF had a strong case, it would be in TSMC's best interest to prevent litigation. TSMC could also benefit from GF's patents. TSMC is more worried about Samsung ATM then they are about GF. Samsung is their near-term threat.

I am glad that this is where this eneded, god knows how many years this would have dragged on and what it could of done to the industry, but as Mark said, Samsung would have been the only winners here.
I smell a merger tbh but nothing to back it
