Samsung is expected to produce the next RTX 30 SUPER

Samsung is expected to produce the next RTX 30 SUPER

This is surprising information from Korea, to say the least. Samsung is said to have won the contract for the production of the next RTX Super which could start in the middle of next year. Samsung should manufacture the chips in its Hwaseong factory, which means that we would remain on an 8nm process.

Why is this information surprising?

Most of Nvidia’s woes over the launch of her Ampere generation seem to be overwhelming Samsung so far. We have explained here in the past that Nvidia’s choices were at the source of the problem but it remains that there is a lot of information confirming a performance problem with Samsung’s 8nm process. A few weeks ago, the rumors were suggesting a return to TSMC.

Nvidia bets on Samsung for techno or politics?

Only thing is, TSMC is in full swing. It can afford to choose its customers and its last ones can no longer negotiate with it. Earlier this month, Samsung announced a change of direction regarding its foundry business. The change was a further manifestation of the Korean’s ambition to gain ground in the global chip manufacturing sector. Analysts said that Samsung’s new head of the foundry, Choi Si-young, has a track record of winning customers for TSMC in the coming years. Finally, to tick the right boxes in a tense market with political tensions, Samsung recently bought a giant piece of land in Austin, Texas, where its chip plant in the US is located, raising hopes that the company could expand its foundry operations. Currently, the company operates seven foundry production lines in Korea and the US…A real signal for those who want to avoid taxes and trade tensions. Samsung Foundry If some analysts explain this choice to renew the agreement between Nvidia and Samsung simply not the fact that TSMC is not able to give a slot for a long time, others have another explanation. Indeed, the repeated investments and the progress made in recent months suggest that Samsung moves closer to TSMC . The company is betting heavily on the use of EUV technology for the 7nm and soon the 4nm for which heavy investments in machinery have been made.
