NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 10 series graphics cards are made on the 16nm FinFET process, with NVIDIA contracting long term partner TSMC to manufacture the Pascal-based GPUs. According to South Korean newspaper Chosun Biz, Samsung has secured a contract manufacturing order to make NVIDIA's next-gen GPUs. Chosun Biz said that Samsung will make the next-gen GPUs using its 14nm process before the end of the year, based on the Pascal architecture.

So what does the community think?

I wonder how this is going to affect clock speeds.

It wont. All that cry about 14nm samsung node is nonsense.

What this means imo, is taiwan semiconductor manufacturing company (TSMC) being more expensive so nvidia is bailing it.

Having a second source will strengthen their bargaining position. I'd be surprised if Nvidia would completely switch over.

Is this going to be for Volta or after Volta?

It is not the first time when nvidia wants to break with TSMC, or last one wink.gifrolleyes.gif

I know how this sounds but I can't really put it any other way but: who cares? As a consumer, all I care about is, will this help performance? Will this keep costs down? Outside of that I don't understand the AMD/Nvidia bickering people do. It's just a waste of key strokes.

right? i never will understand the bickering over amd/nvidia. who cares who likes what LOL!!!!. hell i don't make a lot of money but still constantly buy nvidia things.

end of the day just hope this helps me as the consumer in performance and technology. maybe even help us on price smile.gif

This is interesting news for a few different reasons; firstly, NVIDIA shifting to the 14nm node is an interesting move since it seems to have nailed the 16nm node with its GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 graphics cards. Secondly, does this mean Volta has been delayed and we're going to see a 14nm-based Pascal refresh in early/mid-2017?

That means Nvidia could decide to do both.

And I suspect this means Volta is 14nm, because Nvidia has to stay ahead of AMD... and rumors are, AMD's vega is on par with gtx1080 at a lower price sku.
