with TSMC almost at capacity (and unwilling to give up Apple and AMD) Nvidia has moved to Samsung for their 7nm euv process for Ampere and Qualcomm is making their new 5g modem at 5nm (correct) with Samsung as well. this is a very important move for Nvidia as Samsung has economies of scale (and a willingness to throw cash at problems). the TSMC 7nm isn't euv (yet) so there's a potential for a more densely packed circuitry. given that power and heat will be dropping like a lead weight, this is very good news. the other bit of good Nvidia news is that Samsung will make them their premier 7nm euv client. no more worrying about capacity or production as Samsung will make it happen. this is good news for Samsung too, they've worked out all the bugs on their earlier gen exynos (which couldn't be sold in the U.S for QC issues) so they're distancing themselves from other Qualcomm patent users, and even patched things up with Qualcomm so they're playing nice. bottom line: expect Ampere launch in numbers with wide availability.
