You guys are overreacting to some things. Nvidia is a company, company needs profits, one way to achive higher profits is lowering costs, if samsung can produce cards with lower cost than tsmc, i see no reason why would nvidia stay with tsmc. rest is irrelevant. and there is no hidden truth behind it.

may be, I haven't read up on vega in a while.
just seems surprising they'll be able to deliver a 2x bigger chip with the same power consumption.
and doesn't bigger silicon mean higher production cost ? like I don't understand how amd is possibly making a 450mm chip that costs less than nvidias 300mm one.
