Not right. This changed this time. Google it, the process is one for all.

What is the basis of this? If Apple is done by Q1, why would NVIDIA wait for much longer? They even seem prepared, their latest release is a single enthusiast high end card that won't affect their retailers much.

If Apple wants 20nm from TSMC isn't not going to be the same 20nm that AMD and Nvidia use.
http://www.tsmc.com/english/dedicatedFoundry/technology/28nm.htm

20nm page isn't updated yet to show the different types, but it is probably very safe to assume that the first 20nm parts to come out of TSMC will be geared for as low of power consumption as possible.

We could probably see 20nm GPU in late 2014 and 16nm GPU in late 2015. However that's still far, far better than what we have now.

Nope, only Fap14 will be for 20nm and production will start 1 quarter 2014 (not 1st January).
"Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC, 台積電) will begin 20 nanometer process production in the first quarter of next year and the new operation will contribute to its revenues from the second quarter, spokeswoman Elizabeth Sun (孫又文) said yesterday."
