Hopefully when SMIC 7nm goes live in April Hisilicon will be able to get its 7nm SOCs back to life. I also hope that tb@localizer,
Yup legally stealing somebody tech and claiming their own. That's the deal for TSMC to establish the Arizona FAB, 5nm tech in exchange for more market access, with Huawei sanction all US company had been vying for the TSMC 5nm, killing two birds with 1 stone, eliminating a competitor for APPLE and Qualcomm and gaining the tech. Now Hisilicon is dead even if they had develop a 3nm node cause who will FAB for them. And from what I learned Qualcomm snapdragon 888 5nm chips is having a heating problem , FAB by Samsung its performance is the same with snapdragon 7nm 865 series FAB by TSMC. So the gap between TSMC and Samsung is significant, they had gain the cream of the cream of the Tech world with a sign of the pen, a daylight robbery.
He new legislation will convince TSMC to resume 5nm production for Huawei.
