14nm is hard, expensive.

I believe that makes it only 3 processes on that node: Samsung+GloFo, TSMC, Intel. Or did I miss one?

The list of real men grows thin!

GIS real men have fabs

Pick result from first row, go to page.

iSuppli says I am correct.

A worrying note: Note that none of the DRAM guys are on the list. Whither main memory?

DRAM's are all manufactured at older nodes because you can't scale the buried capacitor nearly as much as transistor sizes. The aspect ratio is too high to cut their size.

IBM dumps their fabs, confirms what we were all thinking. Now Common Platform really is just GloFo+Samsung.

Note to self: find some volume someplace.
